With gold bullion hitting record highs and nearing the issue price of the 2007 proof gold Buffalo coin of $899.95, the Mint took the coin off sale Jan. 3, likely for good.

For the year, buyers snapped up 60,000 of the coins, approximately one-quarter of the number they purchased in 2006, the first year of issue.

Demand during a second year tends to fall sharply, but strong jumps in the price of gold bullion during the year might have played a role in keeping demand as high as it was.
