1/4 oz American Platinum Eagle Proof Coin - Random Years

Platinum Coins can be a sensible way of diversifying even further an investment portfolio that already contains gold and silver bullion.

Platinum is a precious metal, like gold and silver, and has been the raw material for producing coins in some of the most renowned mints worldwide. The US Mint, for instance, first released Platinum Eagles in 1997. The collection consisted of the regular 1 troy oz size and fractional coins of 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz, in bullion, burnished and proof versions.

Though the fractional sizes were discontinued in 2008, you can still purchase random years 1/4 oz American Platinum Eagle Proof coins online from SD Bullion.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains ¼ oz of .9995 fine platinum in a proof finish;
  • First struck in 1997 and discontinued in 2008;
  • Holds a face value of USD 25, guaranteed by The US Federal Government;
  • The obverse depicts a close-up of the face of the Statue of Liberty;
  • The reverse displays themed yearly alternating depictions of the bald eagle.

The Platinum Eagle Designs

Platinum Eagles Proof Coins minted from 1997 to 2008 are unique in the American Eagle Program as they are the only ones with alternating yearly reverse designs. Moreover, from 1998 on, the reverse designs had different themes.

Vistas of Liberty: From 1998 to 2002, the reverse designs depicted the bald eagle soaring over different landscapes from varied regions of the United States.

Foundations of Democracy: From 2006 to 2008, the reverse designs celebrated the three branches of government.

As fractional sizes were discontinued in 2008, the other themes used on the reverse of the Proof Platinum Eagles are exclusive to the 1 troy oz size.

Different artists were responsible for creating the themed reverse designs, including Thomas D. Rogers, Al Maletsky, Donna Weaver, Joel Iskowitz, and Tom Cleveland.

The W mint mark for the West Point Mint is present in all the variations of the reverse design, along with the inscription “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” the face value of $25, the weight “1/4 oz.”, and the platinum content “.9995 PLATINUM.”

On the other hand, the obverse is a creation of John Mercanti. It shows the Statue of Liberty on a frontal close-up, with the word “LIBERTY” arching over it. Completing the image, the year of issue, the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” aside, and “E PLURIBUS UNUM” on the bottom rim, lower left.
