Fractional-weight American Platinum Eagle coins are no longer available in new production from the United States Mint. When the coins debuted in 1997, the bullion and proof versions of the coin were available in a total of four weights. The 1 oz coin was accompanied by the 1/10 oz, oz, and oz coin.
The oz American Platinum Eagle coins was not originally the most popular option among the fractional weights. The 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagle was the popular choice, and even outperformed the 1 oz coin in many years. Toward the end of its production run though, the oz American Platinum Eagle outperformed by the 1/10 oz and 1 oz options.
On the obverse of all oz American Platinum Eagle coins is the image of Lady Liberty, as visible on the Statue of Liberty. Created specifically for the Platinum Eagle in 1997 by John Mercanti, then-US Mint Chief Engraver, the image features a close-up visual of Lady Libertys face as she gazes into the future.
The reverse of the oz American Platinum Eagle Coin includes the Eagle Soaring Above America design. This was created by Thomas D. Rogers in 1997 for the American Platinum Eagle, and is the only design to have featured on the bullion and proof version in the same year (1997).
Each oz American Platinum Eagle coin listed here is in perfect condition according to the NGC. Coins with a Mint State 70 grade have full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws. The oz American Platinum Eagles available today are from the issue years of 1997 to 2008, but JM Bullion cannot guarantee any particular year of issue. Orders are fulfilled based upon availability at the time of processing.
