Available now for only the second time since 2008, the 1 oz American Platinum Eagle bullion coin is one of the most recognizable of all platinum coins. While the US Mint has continued to mint proof versions of this coin, they haven't made a bullion version since 2014. As America's official platinum coin it is the only bullion version coin with its weight, content and purity of 9995 guaranteed by the US Government.
The obverse features a design by the U.S. Mint Engraver John Mercanti that features a close-up portrayal of the face of the Statue of Liberty. Along Liberty's raised arm the words "E Pluribus Unum" are engraved and the word Liberty is written large above her and to her left the words "2017 In God We Trust" complete the design. It is fitting that this design focuses on Liberty as a sound coinage was important to the US Founding Fathers and was even mentioned in the Constitution (albeit platinum was not included). The idea that a sound monetary system was necessary for true liberty was a view shared by the founders especially after having experienced the hardships of the Continental Dollar and its demise.
The reverse was designed by artist Thomas D. Rogers and depicts an eagle soaring with outstretched wings in front of a sunrise with the words "United States of America 9995 Platinum 1 oz". The denomination of $100 is written along with the artist's initials. This design is reminiscent of the American Gold Eagle reverse except that the eagle here isn't trying to stop or about to land, but rather flying free.
This coin contains one troy ounce of 9995 pure platinum and is one of the most recognized bullion version platinum coins in the world. They are great for platinum stackers and collectors alike.
