The Double Prosperity Set includes a one-half ounce Uncirculated 2008 American Buffalo Gold Coin and a one-half ounce Uncirculated 2008 American Eagle Gold Coin. Both coins will carry the “W” mint mark. The coins will be packaged in a hardwood box with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by the US Mint Director.

According the Mint, the number "8" is traditionally associated with prosperity in Asian cultures. 8-8-08, or the triple "8", only comes around once every 100 years.

The American Eagle gold coin obverse features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The reverse design, by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her eaglets.

The American Buffalo gold coin features the classic portrait of a Native American in profile on the obverse and the magnificent American Buffalo, or bison, on the reverse. Noted American sculptor James Earle Fraser, a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, originally prepared both images for the redesigned nickel released in 1913.

The following table provides specifications for each coin in the 8-8-08 Double Prosperity Set.
