The fractional-weight Proof Platinum Eagles were only available from the United States Mint between 1997 and 2008. The design series in production during this timeframe included the 1998-2002 Vistas of Liberty and the 2006-2008 Foundations of Democracy. The 2003-2005 coins had randomly selected designs by the US Mint.
In most cases, the reverse side of 1/10 oz Proof Platinum American Eagles in this listing comes with the image of an American bald eagle on the reverse. For example, all coins in the Vistas of Liberty collection have a design of the American bald eagle as it flies over the nation. The releases in the Foundations of Democracy series featured design elements pointing to the three co-equal branches of the United States federal government, with the eagle and heraldic shield featured on the 2005 release representing the Executive Branch.
On the reverse of 1/10 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle Coins, you will find some of the many designs referenced above. Each Proof Platinum Eagle comes with a “W” mint mark on the reverse of the coin from the West Point Mint.
