American Platinum Eagle coins were first introduced in 1997 by the US Mint. It is the only platinum coin from the US Mint whose weight, content, and metal purity are guaranteed by the US government. John Mercanti, the man behind the design on the reverse of Silver American Eagle coins, designed the obverse image on the 1 oz. Platinum American Eagle coins. Mintage of these coins is extremely limited each year, so act now to ensure you can obtain one of these coins, struck using one of the world’s rarest minerals.
On the obverse side of each coin is the image of Statue of Liberty’s face. Her gazed fixed in the distance, the points of her crown shoot out to the edges of the coin. Engravings on this side include “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and the year of minting.
The reverse side of the bullion coins features a bald eagle soaring above the setting sun. As the sun’s rays reach up from the bottom of the image, a bald eagle flies overhead with its wings outstretched. Engravings include “United States of America,” the weight, purity, and metal content of the coin, as well as the face value.
The United States Mint strikes a limited number of these coins each year, with the highest mintage occurring in 1998. Originally available in four weights, the US Mint only strikes 1 oz. Platinum American Eagles in the series now.
