Platinum American Eagle Coins are available in bullion and proof versions, with these bullion coins featuring the same design elements on the obverse and reverse side each year. John Mercanti, the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint (2006-2010), created a Liberty design based upon her image on the Statue of Liberty. Thomas D. Rogers created the image used on the reverse, which appears on every Platinum Eagle bullion coin and twice featured on the reverse of the Proof Platinum Eagles.

The included First Day of Issue denotes the arrival of the coins at the PCGS for certification. The First Day of Label Issue means these coins were received by the PCGS for the certification process within the first 24 hours of their release date in 2018 by the United States Mint.
On the reverse of Platinum American Eagle Coins, you’ll find the vision of a bald eagle in flight over the nation as the sun crests over the horizon in the background. Engravings include “United States of America,” “.9995 Platinum 1 oz.,” and “$100.”
The obverse side of 2018 Platinum American Eagle coins features the face of the Statue of Liberty gazing off into the distance. Her hand reaches high into the sky above, though her torch is not visible. Engravings on this side read “Liberty,” “2018,” and “In God We Trust.”
