APMEX offers 1/4 oz Proof Platinum American Eagles to add to your collection. Proof coins are struck on specially prepared planchets multiple times to provide a unique finish that collectors desire. The dies used in this process give the coins a mirror-like appearance, in which the coin's device appears to be floating over the liquid of the field. The Platinum American Eagle is the only investment-grade Platinum coin from the United States Mint. It is also the only bullion coin the U.S. Government guarantees for weight, content, and .9995 purity. The 1/4 oz Platinum American Eagle has a $25 face value.
The obverse features the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom to the United States and all who see her. The reverse design changes annually. Usually depicting an American eagle in various settings, the reverse designs have also included other images, including tributes to American government and democracy. Although they change each year, the designs always celebrate the strength and security of the United States.
