The Proof American Eagle Platinum Coin was the first coin from the United States Mint to release new images on one side each year and remains the only annual bullion series to do so. Though the Proof American Eagle Platinum coins have a new reverse, and more recently obverse, design each year, the bullion version of the coin retains the same images on the obverse and reverse with each new release. Today, you have the chance to purchase 2016-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Platinum Coin online at Provident Metals with the original box.
The 2018 Proof American Eagle Platinum Coin featured the second and final design in the Torches of Liberty design program. In 2015 and 2016, the US Mint introduced new designs to the series from its Artistic Infusion Program. The aim of the series was to focus on the core values of liberty and freedom that are held dearly by millions of Americans. The 2016 design came from Paul C. Balan with Joseph Menna as the sculptor.
John Mercantis Statue of Liberty design is on the obverse of the 2016-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Platinum Coin. This design features on the obverse of the bullion coin every year and graced the obverse of the Proof American Eagle Platinum coin from 1997 to 2018. It captures a view of the Statue of Libertys face as she gazes into the future. Inscriptions on this side include Liberty, 2016, and In God We Trust.
In the reverse design of the 2016-W Proof American Eagle Platinum Coin, there is a new, modern vision of Lady Liberty. The Torch of Enlightenment design depicts Liberty in a free-flowing robe as the bald eagle soars passed her feet. She holds the torch in her right hand and gazes at it as her left hand clutches a large olive branch. Inscriptions include United States of America, .9995 Platinum 1 oz, $100, and the W mint mark of the West Point Mint. The initials of the designer and sculptor are also featured on this face of the coin.
The 2015-2016 Torches of Liberty Series was succeeded in 2017 by the 20th-anniversary release of the coin using the original 1997 obverse and reverse designs together again for the first time on the Proof American Eagle Platinum coins. The 2016 design had a mintage nearly triple that of the 2015 design, selling 9,151 coins compared to 3,886 the year before.
These 2016-W Proof American Eagle 1 oz Platinum Coins are available to you inside of US Mint presentation boxes with a Certificate of Authenticity from the US Mint.
