American Platinum Eagle coins are offered by the United States Mint on an annual basis. In a unique twist to this series, it is the proof coin that has been available every year since 1997. Meanwhile, the BU specimen was available during the first decade of production and was then suspended in six of the next seven years.

The American Platinum Eagle was introduced by the US Mint in 1997. The series initially featured 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz platinum coins in both the Proof and Brilliant Uncirculated versions. From 1997 to 2008, the coins were available across both versions in all four weights. In 2009, the fractional-ounce coins were suspended in both programs.
However, not only were the fractional-ounce coins suspended in 2009 in the BU series, but so too was the 1 oz platinum coin. The only coin available in the American Platinum Eagle Series from 2009 to 2013 was the 1 oz proof. A 1 oz BU coin was released in 2014, but suspended again in 2015. Since 2016, the 1 oz BU coin has once again resumed annual production.
The Statue of Liberty is depicted on the obverse of all 2021 American Platinum Eagle Coins. Designed by John Mercanti in 1997, this image features the face of the Statue of Liberty as she gazes off into the distance.
An American bald eagle is the feature of the reverse design element on 2021 American Platinum Eagles. The depiction of the bald eagle found here was designed by Thomas D. Rogers in 1997 for the Platinum Eagle Series. The image of the bald eagle shows its figure gliding through the air with its wings extended to the fullest as the sun rises in the background.
These 2021 1 oz American Platinum Eagle Coins come with a near-perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition showcase full, original mint luster and have no more than two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited in nature to minuscule contact marks or hairlines and limited in scope to the areas outside the primary focal points. The ER label stands for Early Release and points to the arrival of the coins for grading within 30 days of the initial release by the US Mint.
