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.
