The Mint calls these coins uncirculated, but most numismatists refer to them as burnished, to distinguish them from regular bullion/business strikes, are produced using specially burnished blanks (also known as planchets) in the minting process. Burnishing is a process resulting in a smooth matte-like finish. Many people say these coins look very similar to the bullion coins, but in reality, they are more matte in appearance, whereas the bullion strikes are shinier. In addition, the burnished coins carry a "W" mintmark for the West Point Mint, which is where they were produced. A common misconception is that the actual dies are burnished, when it is the blanks themselves that are burnished before being struck with the die.This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Bullion\Gold\Coins".
