Add Gold Buffalo to Shortage List
September 25, 2008



The one-ounce gold Buffalo bullion coins have now been added to the gold and silver American Eagles where demand is exceeding the Mint's ability to produce the coins. The following memo was sent to the Mint's authorized purchasers:

September 25, 2008

MEMORANDUM TO ALL AMERICAN BUFFALO AUTHORIZED PURCHASERS

SUBJECT: American Buffalo 24-Karat Gold One-Ounce Bullion Coins

Demand has exceeded supply for American Buffalo 24-Karat Gold One-Ounce Bullion Coins, and our inventories have been depleted. We are, therefore, temporarily suspending sales of these coins.

We are working diligently to build up our inventory and hope to resume sales shortly. We will keep you updated as information becomes available.

The United States Mint currently has inventory of the following bullion coins: American Eagle Gold fractional coins (1/2 oz., 1/4 oz., 1/10 oz.) and American Eagle Platinum (all denominations). Allocations will continue for the American Eagle 22-Karat Gold One- Ounce and American Eagle Silver Bullion Coins.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
