The American Platinum Eagle
The American Platinum Eagle is the official platinum bullion coin of the United States. The US Platinum Eagles are all struck from .9995 fine platinum and have been made in four different weights: 1/10 Ounce Platinum Eagles, 1/4 Ounce Platinum Eagles, 1/2 Ounce Platinum Eagles, and the standard 1 Ounce American Platinum Eagle. All sizes of American Platinum Eagle are fully backed by the United States Mint for platinum content and weight, and each Platinum Eagle is legal tender within the United States -- each size of Platinum Eagle carries a different face value. Of course, the melt value of platinum in each coin far exceeds this nominal face value.
The American Platinum Eagle is also the only official United States bullion coin that features a changing design. The current six year cycle began in 2009 and highlights American democracy by featuring themes from the Preamble to the US Constitution. The themes were chosen by none other than the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court, upon request from the United States Mint.
