1/4 oz Burnished Platinum Eagles: minted from (2006 – 2008) - If you are looking to diversify your Platinum coin collection or platinum investment portfolio, shop APMEX's wide selection of 1/4 oz Platinum American Eagles. Released in 1997, the Platinum American Eagle is the only investment-grade Platinum coin from the United States Mint. It is also the only bullion coin the United States Government guarantees for weight, content, and .9995 purity. The 1/4 oz Platinum American Eagle has a $25 face value and contains 1/4 of a troy ounce of Platinum.
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.
A tribute to American nationalism, 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. The reverse design changes each year but typically illustrates an image of an American eagle. This majestic bird signifies the strength and security of the United States.
Since its introduction, the Platinum Eagle has become one of the world's most widely-traded Platinum bullion coins. Offering a wide selection of Platinum products, APMEX can help you begin setting up a Platinum portfolio. Start building your Platinum investment today!
