Proof American Platinum Eagle coins are the only major American bullion coins with changing design elements on one side or the other each year. From 1997 to 2017, the reverse image on the Proof Platinum Eagle was refreshed each year. A new 2018-2020 design series refreshed the obverse field for the first time with a common reverse. Fractional-ounce coins in this series were once available with date marks from 1997 to 2008. Today, 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins are available to you in near-perfect condition from JM Bullion.

Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins were introduced in 1997 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz weights available. The coins were available in those four weights until 2008, at which point the US Mint suspended all four weights in the bullion range and the three fractional-ounce coins in the proof range as platinum demand waned amidst rising demand for gold and silver.
All 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins in this listing earned PF69 certifications. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines only and must be located outside the primary focal points.
UCAM labels identify these proof coins as ultra-cameo specimens with strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. This is a random year listing, so we cannot guarantee the date mark you receive in this listing or its matching design. If you buy more than one, please keep in mind you might receive several matching coin dates and designs.
John Mercanti’s design of the Statue of Liberty features on the obverse of all of the 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins in this listing. Mercanti’s design features on the obverse of all bullion versions of the coin and the obverse of all proof coins from 1997 to 2017.
Various artists have contributed work to the design of the reverse field of 1/2 oz Proof American Platinum Eagle Coins. For example, Thomas D. Rogers created the debut 1997 design of the bald eagle soaring over the nation, as well as the 1998 and 2001 designs in the Vistas of Liberty series.
