1 oz Burnished Platinum Eagles - APMEX offers 1 oz Platinum American Eagles to add to your collection. Since its introduction, the Platinum Eagle has become one of the world's most widely-traded Platinum bullion coins. Released in 1997, the Platinum American Eagle is the only investment-grade Platinum coin from the U.S. Mint. It is the only bullion coin the U.S. government guarantees for weight, content, and .9995 purity. The 1 oz Platinum American Eagle has a $100 face value - the highest of any American coin ever minted.
Burnished Platinum Eagles are created through a specialized minting process. Burnished coin blanks are hand fed into specially prepared presses one at a time. Although the appearance of the coins is similar to the bullion versions, these uncirculated versions typically have a superior strike and finish and are handled more delicately. These coins were referred to as collectible uncirculated versions and feature the "W" mintmark for West Point.
The obverse of the Platinum Eagle features the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom to all who see her. The reverse design changes annually. Usually depicting an American eagle in various settings, the reverse designs always celebrate the strength and security of the United States.
Besides their stunning designs, the Platinum Eagle coins also appeal to collectors and investors for their value in investment portfolios. Offering a wide selection of Platinum products, APMEX can help you begin setting up a Platinum portfolio. Start building your Platinum investment today!
