In 1997, the United States Mint introduced the Platinum American Eagle as the third bullion version of the American Eagle coins. The coins were issued from 1997 to 2008 in both BU and Proof versions. Initially, the coins were available in both versions with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz platinum weights.
In 2009, all four of the BU Platinum Eagles were suspended by the United States Mint. The three fractional-ounce versions of the Proof Platinum Eagle were also suspended in 2009. The 1 oz Proof Platinum Eagle was the only coin the US Mint continued to issue between 2009 and 2013. The BU Platinum Eagle returned in 1 oz platinum in 2014, was not issued in 2015, and returned annually starting in 2016. Today, only 1 oz platinum coins are available in the series.
The obverse side of 2022 1 oz Platinum American Eagles comes with an effigy of the Statue of Liberty. This design was created in 1997 for this series by John Mercanti and shows the head of the statue within the design field of the coin.
On the reverse face of 2022 Platinum American Eagles is an American bald eagle. Created in 1997 by Thomas D. Rogers, this image shows a bald eagle gliding through the air as the sun crests the horizon in the background field of the coins.
These 2022 1 oz Platinum American Eagles are available to you individually or in bulk. Individual coins ship in flips, while multiples are available in plastic tubes of 20 coins or Monster Boxes of 100 coins. All of the coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
