The Proof Platinum Eagle in the Platinum American Eagle collection is by far the most unique coin in the American Eagle release.

The Platinum American Eagle Series launched in 1997 with designs from John Mercanti on the obverse and Thomas D. Rogers on the reverse. Similar to other American Eagle coins, the Platinum Eagle focuses on Lady Liberty in the obverse design and the American bald eagle in the reverse design.
What makes the Platinum Eagle unique is the use of different designs for the bullion and proof coins. Mercanti and Rogers’ designs persist on the obverse and reverse of the bullion version of the coin, but it is the Proof Platinum Eagle’s designs that make the collection truly distinguishable. The Proof Platinum Eagles have a new design on the obverse every year and often feature new reverse designs as well.
All 2019-W 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle Coins are available from the United States Mint with a capsule protecting the coin and a US Mint commemorative box to house the product. Each one comes with its own Certificate of Authenticity.
On the obverse of 2019 Proof Platinum American Eagle Coins includes a new design of Lady Liberty standing with her torch held high in the foreground as she watches over the rivers, mountains, and prairies of the United States of America. This is the second design of three in the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence representing “Life, Liberty, and Pursuit of Happiness.”
The reverse of 2019-W 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle features a new design that is common on the three designs in the 2018-2020 series of Proof Platinum Eagles. It depicts an American bald eagle with its wings spread to soften its landing as it clutches an olive branch in its talons.
