Abstract: The asymptotic expansion of a spherical function on a symmetric space of noncompact type, obtained by Harish-Chandra, is a finite linear combination of expansions of the form $ {\Phi _\theta } = {\sum _\mu }'{\Gamma _\mu }(\theta ){e^{\theta - \mu }}$. In this paper it is proved that $ {\lim _{t \to \infty }}'{\Gamma _\mu }(te - \bar \rho )$ is finite and rational for any e, where $ \bar \rho $ is the restriction of half the sum of the positive roots.
