Only one coin series from the United States Mint has ever issued its bullion specimens with new designs on one side each year. While the bullion American Eagle Platinum Coin uses the same images each year, the Proof American Eagle Platinum Coins offer new images on the reverse each year. Provident Metals currently offers 2008-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Platinum Coins for purchase in near-perfect condition.
When you purchase the 2008-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Platinum Coin in this listing at Provident Metals, you will receive a coin with a near-perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins in PR69 condition showcase full, original mint luster with no more than two minor detracting flaws present. Acceptable flaws at this level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines visible outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
Also included with your purchase today is a DCAM designation. The deep-cameo label refers to the strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields of the coin.
The obverse side of 2008-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Platinum Coins bears the image of the Statue of Liberty. Here, the design focuses on the face of Lady Liberty as she gazes into the future holding her torch up as a continued guiding light for the world. This image was designed by John Mercanti in 1997.
On the reverse face of the 2008-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Platinum Coins is the depiction of Lady Justice with the American bald eagle watching over her. Lady Justice was designed as the third and final release of the Foundations of Democracy Series. This series documents the branches of the federal government: Judicial, Legislative, and Executive.
2008 was the last year in which the United States Mint issued fractional-ounce coins in either version of the American Eagle Platinum Coins. The fractional-ounce coins were discontinued in 2009 and never returned. The bullion version was also discontinued that year, but did eventually return in 1 oz platinum in 2014.
