The 2017 release of the American Eagle Platinum Coin marked the 20th anniversary of the nations official platinum bullion coin. Although these bullion coins have had the same design on the obverse and reverse each year, the proof version of the coin has featured a new reverse design every year through 2017. To mark the celebration, the US Mint put the original obverse and reverse designs from 1997 back on the proof version for the first time in the programs history. Right now, you can purchase certified 2017 American Eagle 1 oz Platinum bullion coins online at Provident Metals.
If you purchase the 2017 American Eagle 1 oz Platinum Coin in this product listing, the item you receive comes with a near-perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition exhibit full, original mint luster and have a maximum of two minor detracting flaws present. Examples of acceptable flaws at this grade include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines located outside of the primary focal points of the coin.
On the obverse of the 2017 American Eagle 1 oz Platinum Coin is a depiction of the Statue of Liberty. The image of Lady Liberty shown here was created in 1997 by John Mercanti for the American Eagle Platinum coins and is based on the Statue of Liberty. Her face is the focus of the design as she gazes toward the future with a stoic look on her face.
The reverse side of 2017 American Eagle Platinum Coins includes the Thomas D. Rogers design of an American bald eagle. The eagle is shown here flying over the nation as the sun rises in the background behind it. This design has accompanied the Liberty image from the obverse on all issues of the bullion version of the American Eagle Platinum coin.
American Eagle Platinum coins were introduced in 1997 with four weights available in both bullion and proof. In 2008, coining of all fractional-ounce coins halted and the 1 oz bullion coin was also suspended for several years. It was issued in 2014 and returned for good in 2016, just in time for the 20th anniversary in 2017.
