The fractional-weight Platinum American Eagle coins were low-mintage options in the Platinum Eagle range from 1997 to 2008. The bullion and proof versions of the Platinum American Eagle saw fractional-weight production end with the onset of the Great Recession, making remaining certified coins from that offering incredibly popular. Right now, the 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coin is available to purchase online at Silver.com.

Platinum American Eagle coins are part of the American Eagle Series from the US Mint, and are available today in bullion and proof versions. The coins originally featured 1 oz coins along with three fractional weights: ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle Coins.
The onset of the Great Recession in 2008 meant the end of the fractional-weight coins in the Platinum American Eagle collection for both the bullion and proof versions. The highest mintage years for the 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle came in 1997 (70,520) and 1999 (55,955). It is typically one of the two most in-demand coins among the four available weights.
Each of the 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coins in this product listing has a Mint State 69 grade from the NGC. Coins with this certification are considered near-perfect, and include full, original mint luster. These coins also feature a maximum of two minor detracting flaws, such as minuscule hairlines or contact marks. All flaws are found outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
On the obverse of the 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coin is the image of Liberty gazing into the future. It is based upon her image as found on the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, and focuses on her facial features only rather than her full figure.
The reverse of all 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle coins features the design of an American bald eagle soaring over America. It features an eagle with wings spread wide as it glides over the continent, with the sun rising into the sky in the background.
