    American Gold Buffalo Coins havent been around long enough for many unique date marks to exist, but that doesnt mean the program is without unique coins that have been issued since its 2006 introduction.

    Each of the 2008 1 oz American Gold Buffalo Coins in this listing was struck as part of the bullion run of Gold Buffalo coins for the year. The coins are available to you in Brilliant Uncirculated condition with unique US Mint packaging that identifies the coins as part of the Celebration Series.

    The Celebration Series was concocted by the US Mint to offer numismatic coins in specially designed boxes for gift-giving occasions. These 2008 1 oz American Gold Buffalo Celebration coins are presented inside of red United States Mint boxes with a gold oriental-themed border and come with a Certificate of Authenticity. The coins were released on the first day of the Lunar New Year in 2008 to coincide with the number 8 as it is a lucky number in Chinese culture. Additionally, the selection of a red box was no coincidence. It is tradition during Lunar New Year celebrations to give money to one another, often in red envelopes.

    On the obverse of these 2008 American Gold Buffalo Coins is the image of a Native American. This figure marked the combination of facial features and characteristics from several different real-life tribal figures of the early 20th century and is captured in right-profile relief.

    The reverse of 2008 1 oz American Gold Buffalo coins features an American bison in left-profile relief. The animal stands on a mound of dirt and was designed based on the appearance of Black Diamond, a resident bison in New York Citys Central Park Zoo in the early 20th century.

    For the 2008 1 oz American Gold Buffalo Celebration Coin, the United States Mint diverted just 24,558 coins from the overall bullion collection for special packaging and presentation in the Celebration Series.

    Will I need to sign for my package?+

    Orders under $1000 will not require a signature unless that option is selected and paid for at checkout. Orders over $1000 will always require a signature for delivery.

    What happens if my order is lost or damaged in transit?+

    In the unlikely event your order is lost in transit, please contact us immediately so we can begin the claims process. If your items are not recovered, you will be entitled to a full reimbursement of the losses in accordance with the specific shippers insurance policy. As stated in our Terms and Conditions, we must be contacted within the first two (2) days of delivery concerning any damaged packages.

    Do you ship internationally?+

    We only ship to U.S. addresses (including P.O. Boxes and APO addresses).

    Do I have to ship my order to my billing address?+

    Depending on your method of payment, it is possible to have your order shipped to an address other than your billing address. If you pay with paper check, bank wire, ACH, or bitcoin, you may have your order shipped wherever you please, with two exceptionsUPS locations and mail forwarding locations. If you pay with a credit/debit card, it depends on your order history. If you pay via PayPal, your order must ship to a PayPal Verified address.

    How will I know when my order ships?+

    We will notify you by email once your order ships. You can also check the current status by logging in to your account or using ourTrack An Orderpage.

    How do I choose my shipping method?+

    You may choose how your order is shipped during the checkout process. In the last section of the checkout page, 4 Shipping Method, you will see the available shipping options for your order. If your purchase is eligible for free shipping, the pre-selected option will be base shipping, which is either USPS or UPS at our choice. If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee. Simply click on the circle next to the shipping method you desire, and your order will be shipped via that method.

    If my order includes an item on presale, will the in-stock items ship first?+

    Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived). Your order will ship in its entirety within 24-72 hours of our receiving the presale item. An email notification will be sent when your order ships.

    How do I ship my buyback order to you?+

    We utilize UPS for all buyback shipments. All parcels must be either picked up by UPS or delivered to a UPS Customer Center. The UPS Store is not the same as a UPS Customer Center. We cannot guarantee liability if the parcel is dropped off at a UPS Store, UPS Access Point, UPS Drop Box, or UPS Authorized Service Providers.

    Alternatively, you can ship your order on your own. If you choose to do so, we strongly recommend sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Required) and purchase insurance to cover the full amount of your items. Please be advised that it may be faster and more cost-effective to ship your order using our prepaid UPS label than sending your items via USPS Registered Mail (Signature Requied).

    Safe Shipping and Packaging Checklist

    • Secure merchandise in smaller box
      • Use additional packaging materials such as padded envelopes, bubble wrap, paper, foam pad, making sure movement of merchandise is restricted. Shake the package to be sure there is no rattle.
    • Mark tracking information
      • Mark tracking number, shipper, and recipient information outside the smaller box. Its needed in case the shipping information on the outside box gets damaged and becomes illegible during transit.
    • Double box your shipments
      • Place the small box inside a larger courier box. Make sure movement is restricted with additional cushioning and double boxing dramatically increases the strength and integrity of the parcel.
    • Proper enclosure
      • Please seal all seams or flaps on the outside of the box with clear tape in addition to adhesive on flap. This is an important step to avoid any tampering.
    • Proper labeling
      • Beware of wording which might express reference to valuable goods. Obvious words that directly relate to valuables are strictly prohibited. Abbreviate names, i.e. turn Robs coin Shop to Robs Shop.
    • Important Considerations
      • Act as if all packages are not insured
      • Include a packing slip and note a trade # and/or account name so this parcel can be verified properly
      • Never reveal the contents of your shipment, even to the courier
      • Never state a value or reference to valuables anywhere on the box or label
      • Do not ship a package with a value in excess of $60,000 per box. We have provided an adequate number of label(s) to accommodate your shipment.
    Do you ship to US territories?+

    We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.

    What does “No Will Call” mean?+

    All UPS shipments ship with a No Will Call restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted.

    UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.

    Where do you ship orders from?+

    All orders will ship from our warehouse in Las Vegas, Nevada. We mask our return address on all packages as to not give away the contents of the package.

    Do you ship to PO Boxes?+

    Yes, we do! All orders shipping to a PO Box will ship via USPS.

    Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?+

    No, we do not. The costs in shipping to these places is extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments.

    How do you ship orders?+

    Orders are shipped in inconspicuous packaging via either USPS or UPS.* All shipments are fully insured. Our shipping policy, which is based on order size, can be viewed here.

    *UPS 3-Day Air excludes Alaska, Hawaii, PO Boxes, and APO addresses. No Will Call pickups permitted.Saturday service not included.
