These 1/2 oz American Platinum Eagles contain 0.5003 troy ounces of .9995 fine platinum with a diameter of 27 mm, and will be pulled from random dates.

The American Platinum Eagle was first issued in 1997, as an extension of the American Eagle Bullion Program. The platinum coin was added to the existing offerings in gold and silver which had been previously introduced in 1986. The Platinum Eagle is the first and only investment grade platinum coin issued by the United States Mint.

The obverse design of the coin features a rendition of the Statue of Liberty designed by John Mercanti. It bears the inscriptions “Liberty”, “E Pluribus Unum”, and “In God We Trust” as well as the date. The reverse design of the bullion coins features a soaring Bald Eagle against a rising sun designed by Thomas D. Rodgers Sr. The inscriptions include “United States of America”, “.995 Platinum”, the denomination, and platinum content. From 1998 to date, numismatic versions of the coins have featured annually rotating reverse designs created by various artists.
