Proof coins are struck on specially prepared planchets multiple times to provide a unique finish that appeals to collectors. 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. With their stunning finish, Proof Platinum Eagles sparkle and shine! Guaranteed by the United States Government for weight, content, and .9995 purity, the Proof Platinum Eagles are Platinum treasures that can complement any Platinum coin collection or Platinum investment portfolio.
A tribute to the patriotism and spirit of freedom of the United States, the designs of the American Platinum Eagles give the coins an elegance that attracts collectors and investors alike. The obverse features the Statue of Liberty, a symbol of freedom to the United States and all who see her. However, while the obverse has remained the same since the introduction of the coins, the reverse changes each year. In fact, Proof Platinum Eagles are the only U.S. bullion coins that have a reverse with a yearly changing design.
From 1998 to 2002, the reverse of the proof versions of the Platinum American Eagle featured designs that were part of a program called "Vistas of Liberty." In this series, the reverse designs featured a bald eagle in various regions of the United States. From 2006 to 2008, designs from a new series called "The Foundations of Democracy" graced the reverse of the Proof Platinum American Eagles. The designs in this series paid tribute to the three branches of American government. Beginning in 2009, the Platinum coins began to feature designs from a series showcasing the concepts of democracy and the Preamble to the United States Constitution.
