Proof Platinum American Eagles are available to purchase from the US Mint with new reverse design elements each year. From 1997 to 2017, the US Mint used new images on the reverse side each year, before switching to new obverse design elements for the first time in 2018. During the first decade of availability, the US Mint offered Proof Platinum Eagles in fractional-ounce weights as well, with the largest being the 1/2 oz Proof Platinum Eagle. Now, 1/2 oz Proof Platinum American Eagles from random years are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Coins ship to you inside of individual plastic capsules!
  • Dates range from 1997 to 2008!
  • Availability is limited!
  • Consists of One-Half Troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum.
  • Issued a face value of $50 (USD) by the United States.
  • The obverse features the Statue of Liberty.
  • On the obverse is a new design of the American bald eagle each year.
  • Comes with “W” mint marks from the West Point Mint.
  • Please remember you could get coins with matching dates and designs when buying multiples.

From 1997 to 2008, the Proof Platinum Eagle was offered in 1 oz platinum and three fractional-ounce options. The fractional-ounce coins were suspended starting in 2009 and have not been reissued in the series since that time. Among the three weights, the 1/2 oz coin was the largest and is followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins.

Production of the 1/2 oz Proof Platinum Eagles varied from one year to the next. The highest mintage in this weight came in the second to last year of availability. The 2007 coin had a mintage of 25,519 coins, some 10,000 more than the next closest year and more than double the average yearly mintage. The lowest mintage came in the final year, 2008, when just 4,020 coins were struck.

The obverse of 1/2 oz Proof Platinum American Eagles comes with an image of the Statue of Liberty. This design was created in 1997 by John Mercanti and features every year on the obverse of the BU coins, and was on the obverse of all proof coins from 1997 to 2017.

On the reverse field of 1/2 oz Proof Platinum Eagles, you will find varying depictions of the American bald eagle. From 1998 to 2002, the Vistas of Liberty series offered various images of the American bald eagle in flight above different regions of the nation. The 2006-2008 series known as the Foundations of Democracy offered symbols of the three branches of American federal government.

These 1/2 oz Proof Platinum American Eagles come with protective capsules only and are offered from random years of availability. The possible date marks, as mentioned above, range from 1997 to 2008. Silver.com selects all coins at random once your payment has been processed. As such, we cannot guarantee a design or date in advance. If you buy multiples, it is possible to receive coins with the same date and design.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
