The oz American Platinum Eagle coin was a low-mintage option in the Platinum Eagle range from 1997 to 2008. The bullion and proof versions of the American Platinum Eagle saw fractional-weight production end with the onset of the Great Recession, making remaining certified coins from that offering incredibly popular. Right now, the oz American Platinum Eagle coin is available to purchase online from JM Bullion.
