The 1/4 oz American Platinum Eagle is being offered in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. Each coin has been produced by the US Mint with .9995 pure platinum and weigh 1/4 troy ounce. Additionally, each coin has a USD face value of $25 and measures 22 mm in diameter and 1.32 mm in width. As fitting the official platinum bullion coin of the US, each 1/4 oz coin possesses a purity of .9995. However, unlike most coins, American Platinum Eagles are often classified as “commodity platinum,” which means that their value is derived exclusively from their size and metal composition as opposed to their rarity and uniqueness. Consequently, these coins have become a popular favorite among those wishing to make a significant investment in platinum.
The artwork of the American Platinum Eagle pays tribute to some of the United States’ most beloved icons. Prominently featured on the obverse of the is coin is the Statue of Liberty. From her trademark crown to the reassuring expression on her face, artists have taken great care to provide an accurate rendition of this celebrated figure. Her appearance is very consistent with what viewers might see if they were observing the actual statue. Also engraved unto the obverse of the coin are her name accompanied by the coin’s mintage year and the phrase, “In God We Trust.”
The reverse side of the coin displays an equally patriotic motif with the national bird serving as the primary focal point. The image depicts a bald eagle as it spreads its wings to their full span and majestically soars through the clear skies. Beaming radiantly behind it is the rising sun. As a final accent to this moving tableau are the coin’s weight, purity, denomination and country of origin.
