The 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagles here are from various years of production. The 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagle is no longer available from the US Mint in bullion, but was offered between 1997 and 2008. The specific year of issue for the 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagle you receive from this listing cannot be reserved and will depend upon availability at the time of order.
American Platinum Eagle bullion coins have the same obverse and reverse design fields every year. Former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti designed the obverse in 1997, while Thomas D. Rogers created the reverse design used on all bullion coins. Rogers was, at the time, an Assistant Engraver with the US Mint.
On the obverse of the 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagle coin is the image of Liberty gazing into the future. It is based upon her image as found on the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor, and focuses on her facial features only rather than her full figure.
The reverse of all 1/10 oz American Platinum Eagle coins features the design of an American bald eagle soaring over America. It features an eagle with wings spread wide as it glides over the continent, with the sun rising into the sky in the background.
