The United States Mint has released the 2016 Proof Platinum American Eagle, and Silver.com now has this exciting annual coin release from the US Mint available for purchase! The Platinum American Eagle is unique among the many versions of the American Eagle series because it features extremely low mintages. Today, Silver.com offers the 2016-W 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle coin with its collectible box from the United States Mint.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a commemorative display box and includes a Certificate of Authenticity.
  • Total mintage capped at just 10,000 coins for 2016!
  • 20th annual version of the Proof Platinum American Eagle.
  • Consists of One Troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum.
  • Face value of $100 (USD) is fully supported by the US government.
  • Obverse bears the Portraits of Liberty design.
  • Reverse includes the final installment in the Torches of Liberty design series.
  • Includes the West Point Mint’s “W” mint mark.

Platinum American Eagle coins debuted in 1997, more than a decade after the gold and silver versions of the popular coin program were unveiled. While the latter coins in the program featured historic coin designs on the obverse, the US Mint turned to its Chief Engraver for a fresh design of Liberty on the obverse.

Then-US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti created a design that focused on the head of the Statue of Liberty, depicting her as she stares off into the future. Known as Portraits of Liberty, this design has continued in use on the obverse of Platinum American Eagle coins since 1997.

The reverse side of Platinum American Eagle coins has been a different story. While the bullion versions of the coin feature the same image annually, the proof coins have a new design theme each year. These 2016-W 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle coins feature the second and final Torches of Liberty design.

Created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program artist Paul C. Balan and brought to life by US Mint Sculptor-Engraver Joseph Menna, the Torch of Enlightenment depicts Liberty as she holds the torch to her right side and grasps an olive branch to her left. An American bald eagle is featured flying behind her in the background.

Each of these 2016-W 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle coins will ship to you in the original commemorative box from the United States Mint, and features the US Mint’s Certificate of Authenticity to verify the status of your coin.

If you have any questions about our platinum coins, please don’t hesitate to ask a Silver.com customer service team member. Our associates are available at 888-989-7223, or you can connect with us online using our live web chat and email features.

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.

How can I contact you?

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.
