The obverse depicts the head of America's symbol of freedom, the Statue of Liberty and the reverse shows an American Eagle soaring high above the earth. A welcome addition to your precious metal portfolio. John M. Mercanti designed the obverse of the U.S. platinum bullion coins using the head of the Statue of Liberty. The metal content of each denomination consists of 99.95% pure platinum. Mintmark (W) appears on the reverse of Proof and Uncirculated collector versions, but positions vary from year to year; coins are struck at the West Point mint.

Platinum buyers have made Platinum Eagle coins the most popular platinum bullion coins in the U.S. Platinum Eagles were first minted in mid-1997, and Platinum Eagles were an immediate success, with the Mint turning out 53,000 1-oz Platinum Eagles in a shortened minting year. In 1998, 133,002 1-oz Platinum Eagles were minted, and Platinum Eagles were off to a roaring success.

However, when Platinum Eagles were introduced, platinum was trading only a few dollars above the price of gold, and many gold bullion buyers bought Platinum Eagles instead of gold bullion coins.

Platinum Eagles are .9995 pure and come in four sizes: 1-ounce, 1/2-ounce, 1/4-ounce, and 1/10-ounce. The face values are symbolic but make Platinum Eagles legal tender coins. Just like their sister Gold Eagle coins, Platinum Eagles sell at prices that reflect the intrinsic value of their content, not their legal tender values.

The U.S. Mint has temporarily suspended sales of all American Eagle platinum bullion coins. As a U.S. Mint American Eagle program retailer, CoinsPlus, Inc. will supply these coins when shipments resume.

The American Eagle Platinum coin is popular with investors and collectors who find the coin's beauty and the purity guarantee of the U.S. Mint irresistible. All American Eagles have a U.S. Dollar face value imprinted, authenticating them as official U.S. tender. The one ounce platinum coin displays the highest face value ($100) ever to appear on a U.S. coin. Their value to investors is not in their face value, however, but in their platinum content.

The American Eagle platinum is unique in that it is the only platinum bullion coin whose weight, content, and purity is backed by the United States Government. Since they require no assaying, these coins have instant liquidity, and can be easily converted to cash at any time.

Platinum pricing is based on the current
market spot price plus a premium per coin. The spot price of platinum (and all precious metals) is reported every business day in all major newspapers, network television and radio and online.
