Burnished describes the coin manufacturing process. The process starts with the blanks being tumbled with tiny beadsized steel balls before heading to the coin press. The burnished coin blanks are then hand-fed into specially adapted coin presses one at a time. The unique manufacturing process gives the coins a stunning, matte-like finish. These unique coins are further distinguished from bullion coins by the presence of the W mint mark, indicating that they were struck at the West Point Mint. The mintages are lower because producing a burnished coin is very labor intensive and expensive process.
