Bullion Platinum American Eagle coins were offered from 1997 to 2008, but the impact of the Great Recession on the demand for silver and gold forced the US Mint to suspend production of the Platinum Eagle. In 2014, the US Mint restarted the bullion version of the coin and sold a total of 16,900 coins.
The onset of the Great Recession in 2008, coupled with immense increases in demand for the Silver American Eagle pushed the Platinum Eagle bullion coin to the sidelines in production at the US Mint. From 2009 to 2013 there were no bullion versions of the Platinum American Eagle struck, and the fractional-weight coins never returned in bullion or proof after the recession.
Each of the individual coins in this Platinum American Eagle Coin Set is in Mint State 69 condition according to the PCGS. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster and feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws on the surface areas.
In this set you’ll find a 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz bullion Platinum American Eagle coin included in this set. Because the fractional-weight coins are no longer struck by the US Mint, your set will feature four coins of the same issue date ranging only from 1997 to 2008.
On the obverse of each Platinum American Eagle coin is the image of the Statue of Liberty. Created in 1997 by then-Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti, this image features on the obverse of all bullion, proof, and uncirculated version of the Platinum Eagle.
The reverse side of the coin features an image from former US Mint engraver and artist Thomas D. Rogers. His creation is known as “Eagle Soaring Above America,” and has featured on the reverse of the bullion coin since 1997.
