Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins come with new designs on the reverse field of the coin each year. This is the only series from the United States Mint to use new designs each year. In the case of this series, the reverse field had new designs every year from 1997 to 2017 with only those two date marks sharing a design.
The fractional-ounce coins were available in both the bullion and proof collections from 1997 when the coin series debuted until 2008. With demand for platinum coins waning in the 21st century, the US Mint halted all of the bullion coins and resulted in the end of the fractional-ounce coins.
On the obverse of 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins is the depiction of the Statue of Liberty. Her figure is featured here in a design from John Mercanti that focuses on her face as she gazes toward the future.
The reverse side of 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle coins bears a new design each year. Examples of designs include the 1997 image of the American bald eagle soaring over the nation or the 2006-2008 designs reflecting the branches of the federal government: legislative, judicial, and executive.
These 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins are in perfect condition. PR70 coins have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws present. The DCAM designation stands for deep-cameo and means the coins have strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
Random listings such as this come with the possibility of receiving a coin at random. We cannot guarantee the date mark or design you receive. If you purchase multiples, you might receive several coins with the same dates and designs.
