American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins

American Eagle Coins

Background

The American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins are the first and only official investment-grade palladium coins from the United States government.  Authorized by Congress in 2010 and first issued in 2017, they are part of a complete precious metals portfolio available from the U.S. Mint. The coins give investors an easy way to take advantage of palladium as a precious metal investment. The American Eagle Palladium Coin is the only palladium bullion coin whose weight, content, and .9995 purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government.

All American Eagle Coins are legal tender coins. Although their face value is largely symbolic, it provides proof of their authenticity as official U.S. coinage. The one-ounce palladium coin carries a face value of $25.

The coin’s obverse features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the 1916 Mercury Dime obverse by famed artist Adolph A. Weinman.

The reverse design features a high-relief version of Weinman’s 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal reverse. In developing the coin, the Mint used the original reverse plaster of the AIA medal. This is the first time that Weinman’s AIA design appears on a U.S. coin.
