Platinum American Eagles debuted in 1997. The US Mint released the coins with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz options available. In 2009, all four weights were suspended. In 2014, the 1 oz coin was released to restart the program. No coin was issued in 2015, but as of 2016, the coins are back in regular production with the 1 oz platinum coin still the only option for investors.
All of the 2021 1 oz Platinum American Eagles available here come with individual purchasing options and options for multiples. Individual coins are housed inside of protective plastic flips. Multiples of 20 coins are in the original mint tubes and multiples of 100 coins are in Monster Boxes. The Monster Box contains five tubes of 20 coins each.
The Statue of Liberty is featured on the obverse field of the 2021 1 oz Platinum American Eagles. The image shown here focuses on the face of Liberty with her towering, spiked crown on her head. Her stoic gaze is fixed toward the horizon as her right arm extends beyond the field of view on the coin to hold a torch up in the air. This design was created in 1997 for this series by John Mercanti. Mr. Mercanti worked for the US Mint from 1974 until 2010 when he retired as the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
An American bald eagle is shown in the reverse design of the 2021 Platinum American Eagles. The bald eagle is depicted flying through the air with its wings spread wide and its very edge feathers are flexed out. The sun rises over the horizon in the background. The design comes from Thomas D. Rogers, a sculptor-engraver who worked for the United States Mint from 1991 to 2001.
