The Platinum American Eagle coin debuted in 1997 with these 1 oz platinum coins, and three fractional weights as well. From 1997 to 2008 the coins were available as such, but the Great Recession altered the US Mint’s production of these coins. With lower platinum prices heading into the recession, the Platinum Eagle was suspended and did not resume until 2014. Production since then includes only the 1 oz coin, and the coins were not struck in bullion in 2015.
On the obverse of all Platinum American Eagle coins is the image of Liberty. Known as “Liberty gazing into the future,” the solemn appearance of Liberty’s face wearing that crown of freedom is captured here on the obverse by John Mercanti. Mercanti joined the US Mint as an artist in 1974, and in 2006 ascended to the position of Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. He became just the 12th person to hold the title.
The reverse of the 2018 1 oz Platinum American Eagle coin includes the image of an eagle as it soars gracefully above the country. The sun sets in the background as the bird’s fully stretched wings help it glide along.
