Beginning in the 1980s, sovereign mints started issuing platinum bullion coins. Many of these early platinum coin collections offered 1 oz platinum alongside fractional-ounce platinum coins. Today, many of these programs have been trimmed back to offer only 1 oz platinum, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find fractional-ounce platinum coins. Right now, 1/2 oz Platinum Coins are available to purchase online from JM Bullion in varied conditions.

Each 1/2 oz Platinum Coin available in this product listing at JM Bullion comes in varied conditions from any mint. The coins are housed inside of individual plastic flips and come in conditions that can vary from brand new to those with various degrees of wear and tear. The coins also come with different designs and mints of origin.
JM Bullion selects the coins in this listing at our discretion. There is no way for our team to guarantee the date mark, design, or condition of the coins you receive. All items are chosen after your payment has been processed. Please remember that you could receive matching date marks, designs, and conditions if you purchase several coins.
On the obverse and reverse of the 1/2 oz Platinum Coins, you will find various different designs based on the mint of origin and the program of release. As an example of a 1/2 oz Platinum Coin you could receive in this listing, please consider the American Platinum Eagles. From 1997 to 2008, the US Mint issued the 1/2 oz American Platinum Eagle with the image of the Statue of Liberty on the obverse and the American bald eagle in flight on the reverse.
Another example of a 1/2 oz Platinum Coin you could receive in this listing is the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf. Like the American Platinum Eagle, fractional-ounce versions of the Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf were available early in the program’s history. From 1988 to 2002, the 1/2 oz Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf was available with the sugar maple leaf design on the reverse and Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The bust of Queen Elizabeth II featured on the obverse is either the Arnold Machin second-generation design from the Royal Mint of England or the 1990 third-generation design from Dora de Pedery-Hunt, the first-ever portrait from a Canadian artist.
