WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the 2019 American Eagle One Ounce Palladium Reverse Proof Coin (product code 19EK) on September 12 at noon EDT. The coin was previously scheduled to go on sale September 5.
Orders will be limited to one coin per household across all order channels for the first 24 hours of sales. After 24 hours, the household limit will be lifted. This coin will not be available for purchase through the bulk program. The mintage and product limits are 30,000 units.
The American Eagle One Ounce Palladium Reverse Proof Coin is the collector version of the official United States Mint American Eagle One Ounce Palladium Bullion Coin introduced in 2017. Each coin contains one ounce of 99.95 percent palladium. The palladium coin is a recurring product; however, finishes may alternate each year.
The obverse (heads) and reverse (tails) designs for the palladium reverse proof coin are based upon designs by famed American coin designer and medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman. The obverse features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the “Mercury Dime” obverse. In keeping with the original coin, inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “2019,” and Weinman’s distinct initials.
The reverse (tails) design features a high-relief version of the 1907 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal reverse, which features an eagle and a branch. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES of AMERICA,” “$25,” “1 OZ. Pd (the chemical symbol for Palladium) .9995 FINE,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
Each coin is encapsulated and packaged in a satin-lined gray leatherette presentation case. A Certificate of Authenticity is included.
