Under Public Law 111-303, the Secretary of the Treasury is required to mint and issue palladium bullion coins from the United States Mint on an annual basis. The coins debuted with the bullion issue in 2017, and the US Mint has authorization to strike a proof coin along with an uncirculated coin for collectors as well. The US Mint plans a 2018 release for Proof Palladium Eagles.
All Palladium American Eagle Coins follow in the tradition of the American Eagle Series. The coins feature the same obverse and reverse design every year. However, the images of Liberty and the bald eagle will differ from those on the other American Eagle coins, which of course all use their own depictions of Liberty and the eagle for uniqueness in the series.
The obverse of all 2017 1 oz Palladium American Eagle Coins includes the design from the 1916 issue of the Mercury Dime. The debut year for that coin, Weinman created a left-profile portrait of Liberty wearing a winged Phrygian cap reminiscent of the Roman messenger god Mercury. Included engravings read “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” “2017,” and “AW” for Weinman.
On the reverse of the 2017 Palladium American Eagle is another design from Weinman. This one was created for an American Institute of Architects gold medal issued in 1907. Weinman is the only artist in the American Eagle Series to have his designs feature on both faces of the coin.
Your 2017 1 oz Palladium American Eagle in this listing is a perfect specimen according to the NGC. An MS70 coin has full, original mint luster and lacks all detracting flaws. Coins labeled Early Release were received for certification within the first 30 days of their 2017 release by the United States Mint.
