Authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1996 and initially minted in 1997, the American Eagle Platinum Coin is the first and only official investment-grade platinum coin from the U.S. Mint.
All American Eagles are legal tender coins with their "face value" imprinted in U.S. dollars, but the one-ounce Platinum Eagle coin displays the highest face value ever to appear on a U.S. coin - $100 dollars.
The American Eagle Platinum Coins come in one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and tenth-ounce denominations. With a purity of .9995 fine platinum guaranteed by the United States Government, these make a perfect choice for any portfolio and are extremely popular with investors and collectors who find the coin's beauty and the purity guarantee of the U.S. Mint irresistible.
The obverse of the American Eagle Platinum Coin, features John M. Mercanti's design depicting the head of the Statue of Liberty, which is America's symbol of freedom. The reverse reveals an American Eagle soaring high above the earth. The metal content of each denomination consists of 99.95% pure platinum. Mint marks appear on the reverse, but positions vary from year to year; coins have been struck at the Philadelphia and West Point mints.
