Background

As America’s official platinum bullion coin, American Eagle Platinum Bullion Coins give investors an easy way to take advantage of platinum as a precious metal investment. Authorized by Congress in 1996 and first issued in 1997, they are the first and only official investment-grade platinum coins from the United States Government. American Eagle Platinum coins are part of a complete precious metals portfolio available from the United States Mint. The American Eagle Platinum is the only platinum bullion coin whose weight, content and .9995 purity are guaranteed by the United States Government.

All American Eagles are legal tender coins, with their face value imprinted in U.S. dollars. Although their face value is largely symbolic, it provides proof of their authenticity as official U.S. coinage. The one-ounce platinum coin displays the highest face value ($100) ever to appear on a U.S. coin.

The American Eagle Platinum Bullion Coins come in a one ounce size only.
