America’s Platinum Eagle coin program was unveiled more than a decade after its gold and silver counterparts, with the first coins struck and released in 1997. All Platinum American Eagles share a motif with the American Eagle coin program. A depiction of Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse, while the reverse bears the image of a bald eagle.
On the obverse side of these 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagles is a close-up image of the Statue of Liberty. With her massive crown visible, Lady Liberty stares intently forward with a determined gaze. The word “Liberty” is engraved above her head, while the year of minting and the motto “In God We Trust” are featured to the right of the coin.
The reverse side bears the image of a bald eagle with its wings spread to their fullest as it flies over the sun. Above the image, “United States of America” is engraved, while the purity, metal content, and weight of the coin are engraved just in front of the eagle. The coin’s face value is engraved below.
The United States Mint produces Platinum American Eagles in 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz weights each year. The coins in this product listing are all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition, but the year of minting you receive will be determined by availability when your order is fulfilled for shipping.
