Fractional-weight Platinum American Eagle coins are no longer available in new production from the United States Mint. When the coins debuted in 1997, the bullion and proof versions of the coin were available in a total of four weights. The 1 oz coin was accompanied by the 1/10 oz, ¼ oz, and ½ oz coin.
The ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle coins was not originally the most popular option among the fractional weights. The 1/10 oz Platinum American Eagle was the popular choice, and even outperformed the 1 oz coin in many years. Toward the end of its production run though, the ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle outperformed by the 1/10 oz and 1 oz options.
On the obverse of the ¼ 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 ¼ 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.
The ¼ oz Platinum American Eagle coins listed here with JM Bullion have been certified perfect coins by the PCGS. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and feature no detracting flaws of any kind.
All Platinum American Eagle coins are a product of the United States Mint’s West Point Mint facility, which also handles production of Silver American Eagles and Gold American Eagles in all three versions.
