The American Platinum Eagle was the third version of the American Eagle Series introduced by the United States Mint. Offered in Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions, it was the latter option that charted a new path forward for American coining. The Proof American Platinum Eagle was the first-ever bullion coin from the US Mint to showcase new designs on the coins each year.

Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins were issued starting in 1997 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins available in both the Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof versions of the coin. From 1997 to 2008, production of the fractional-ounce coins continued on an annual basis. The 2008 release was the last one to feature the fractional-ounce options.
Throughout the history of the Proof American Platinum Eagle Series, the US Mint has produced new designs on one side of the coin or the other. From 1997 to 2017, the reverse had a new design every year except one, with the 1997 and 2017 coins boasting the same design. During the period of issue for these 1/4 oz Proof American Platinum Eagles, it was the reverse design that changed each year.
For the obverse face of 1/4 oz Proof Platinum Eagles, the Statue of Liberty is shown in a stirring depiction. Created in 1997 by John Mercanti, this design showcases the Statue of Liberty with a focus on her face as her stoic gaze looks out over the Atlantic Ocean toward the Old World as a beacon of hope to the world.
In the reverse design element of 1/4 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins, the United States Mint offers a new design each year. From 1997 to 2008, the series featured the Vistas of Liberty program (1998-2002) and the Foundations of Democracy program (2006-2008). Designs included various depictions of the American bald eagle in flight over the nation.
