The Palladium Eagle, like others in the American Eagle collection, features an image of Liberty on the obverse side and the American bald eagle on the reverse. The Palladium Eagle is the first coin in the series with both designs coming from the same artist: Adolph A. Weinman. Both of Weinman’s designs are more than a century old, with Winged Liberty designed in 1916 and the bald eagle in 1907.
On the obverse of the 2017 Palladium American Eagle is Weinman’s left-profile portrait of Liberty. This is known as Winged Liberty and was designed by Weinman in 1916 for use on the 10-cent piece in American circulation. The image bears a strong resemblance to the Roman messenger god Mercury with a winged, Phrygian cap on her head.
The reverse of the Palladium American Eagle coin features the American bald eagle on a rocky cliff, clutching a branch in its talons. The engravings on either side of the coin include “Liberty,” the national motto, and the year of issue for the obverse and the coin’s weight, purity, metal content, and face value on the reverse.
All Palladium American Eagle coins are struck by the United States Mint at the West Point Mint facility, though as bullion coins they would never feature a mint mark.
