Platinum Eagle Design
A tribute to American patriotism, the design of the Platinum American Eagle reflects the American spirit of freedom. The obverse of the Platinum American Eagle features the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom to all who see her. While the obverse has remained the same since its release, the reverse of Proof American Platinum Eagles is unique in that it changes each year. In fact, the Proof American Platinum Eagles are the only U.S. bullion coins that have a reverse with a yearly changing design. Although the reverse design changes yearly, it typically illustrates an image of an American eagle. This majestic bird signifies the strength and security of the United States.
