When most investors and collectors think of the American Eagle program from the United States Mint, their minds immediately go to the popular Silver American Eagle and valuable Gold American Eagle. Like other mints around the globe, the US Mint actually produces a platinum version of its popular American Eagle as well. Today, the 1998 1 oz Platinum American Eagle Coin is available from Silver.com in BU condition.

Coin Highlights:

  • Second annual striking of a Platinum American Eagle coin!
  • Available in BU condition!
  • Ships to you in a protective plastic flip.
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum.
  • Issued a face value of $100 (USD) by the United States government.
  • Obverse features the image of the Statue of Liberty’s head.
  • Reverse bears the image of an American bald eagle soaring over the sun.

The Platinum American Eagle has a much different history and production record than its silver and gold counterparts. The Platinum American Eagle was introduced in 1997, more than a decade after the silver and gold eagles. More importantly though are the design differences that make these coins unique.

Each 1998 1 oz Platinum American Eagle in this listing has the same obverse and reverse designs as the original bullion coins and those produced since. However, the proof and uncirculated versions of the coin share only the same obverse as the bullion version.

All proof and uncirculated Platinum American Eagle coins have changing designs on the reverse side each year. This makes the Platinum American Eagle the only bullion quality coin from the US Mint to change its design on either side on a regular basis.

The obverse of the 1998 1 oz Platinum American Eagle features the image of the Statue of Liberty, and is referred to as “Liberty looking to the future” because of its focus on her face and her gaze into the distance. This was designed by former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti in 1997.

On the reverse of each Platinum American Eagle in this listing is the image of a bald eagle as it soars over the sun. US Mint engraver and sculptor Thomas D. Rogers Sr. designed the image of the eagle with its wings outstretched and the rising sun in the lower corner of the design field.

Each of these 1998 1 oz Platinum American Eagle coins has a Brilliant Uncirculated grade. Coins in BU condition exhibit no signs of wear and tear, however you might notice breaks in the luster, spotted surfaces, or contact marks from production.

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.
