Platinum American Eagle coins debuted in 1997 as bullion and proof coins with weights including 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz options. Those four weights persisted through 2008, at which point the bullion program halted for five years and the proof series was whittled down to just the 1 oz platinum coin.
From 2009 to 2013, there was no bullion version of the Platinum American Eagle. The coins returned in 2014, but were again halted in 2015. Since 2016, the Platinum American Eagle bullion coin has been back in regular production.
The obverse of 2019 1 oz Platinum American Eagle Coins features the design known as Liberty looking into the future. It was created in 1997 by John Mercanti and captures a close-up look at the face of Liberty on the Statue of Liberty, along with inscriptions of “Liberty,” “In God We Trust,” and the date mark.
On the reverse of 2019 Platinum American Eagles is a design featuring an American bald eagle in flight over the continent. This was created in 1997 by Thomas D. Rogers, a sculptor and engraver working for the United States Mint.
The two designs found on the bullion Platinum American Eagle are the most commonly used in this series. Though these two images remain a constant on the bullion version of the coin, they’ve also featured on the proof coin. Liberty graced the obverse of the proof coins from 1997 to 2017, and Rogers’ American eagle design is the only one to feature twice on the reverse of the proof coin. It was on the debut issue in 1997 and the 20th-anniversary issue in 2017.
