Platinum American Eagle coins were originally available in 1 oz platinum and three fractional weights: 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. This was the case for both bullion and proof versions of the coin. From 2008 onward though, the US Mint halted the production of fractional weights in both the bullion and proof ranges.
All of these 1 oz Platinum American Eagle Coins are available to you for purchase in near-perfect condition. The PCGS issues a Mint State 69 certification to coins with full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws include minuscule contact marks or hairlines, and they must be present only outside the primary focal points of the coin.
Silver.com offers Platinum American Eagle coins in this listing as a random year allotment. We’ll select your coins at random once your payment has processed. We cannot guarantee a specific date mark or hand select various different date marks if you buy more than one coin.
1 oz Platinum Eagles were initially issued by the US Mint from 1997 to 2008. The bullion coins were halted from 2009-2013, while the proof coins continued in production. The bullion Platinum Eagle returned in 2014 with just a 1 oz weight, and after another halt in 2015, resumed in 2016 for good.
On the obverse of 1 oz Platinum American Eagle Coins is the image of the face from the Statue of Liberty. This image was designed in 1997 by John Mercanti, the man who would go on to serve as the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint from 2006 to 2010. The reverse includes the design of an American bald eagle soaring above the continent. This image came from US Mint engraver-sculptor Thomas D. Rogers.
