History of the Platinum American Eagle

The Platinum American Eagle is the official Platinum bullion coin of the United States. In 1995, United States Mint Director Philip N. Diehl began the legislative procedure of creating the Platinum Eagle with the assistance of American Numismatic Association President David L. Ganz and Platinum Guild International Executive Director Jacques Luben. The process took more than two years and to fruition in 1997 when the United States Mint premiered a Platinum bullion coin. The Platinum American Eagle is offered in 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/2 oz fractionals in addition to the familiar 1 oz size and all sizes are struck in beautiful .9995 fine Platinum. The Platinum American Eagle is a sovereign coin authorized by the United States Congress and is backed by the United States Mint for weight and content.

Platinum for Your IRA

Because the Platinum American Eagle bullion coin is considered commodity Platinum rather than a rare coin, it is eligible for inclusion in a Precious Metals Individual Retirement Account. Collectible coins are not permitted in these accounts, as only investment-quality bullion coins count as investments for this purpose. From this, we can understand that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission believes the Platinum American Eagle may be likely to appreciate similarly to Gold and Silver bullion coins.

Brilliant Uncirculated Coins for the Investor

In addition to the Brilliant Uncirculated 2018 1 oz Platinum American Eagle, the U.S. Mint also produces a Proof version for coin collectors. The Proof American Platinum Eagles differ from the BU iteration in that the reverse designs changes annually. The BU variety, bearing a standard reverse design that features an eagle in flight, was not minted from 2009-2013, or in 2015. The Brilliant Uncirculated 2018 1 oz Platinum American Eagle is a superior choice for the savvy investor.
