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

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
