The 1/4 Ounce American Platinum Eagle is a fractionally-sized platinum coin in the American Platinum Eagle Series, manufactured by the United States Mint since 1997. Unlike Gold and Silver American Eagles, which have an unchanging design, the Platinum Eagles utilize an annually-changing motif. The newest six year series of themed designs began in 2009. The 1/4 Ounce American Platinum Eagle has its weight, authenticity, and platinum content fully backed by the US Mint, making these attractive investment options for people who buy platinum online.

Details of the 1/4 Ounce American Platinum Eagle

The latest series of Platinum Eagles features a design on the reverse that changes annually. Each motif is modeled after a particular tenet of American democracy, with the ideas for the themes coming from the Chief Justice of the United States Supreme Court. The reverse also displays the $25 face value, the weight, and the platinum fineness of each coin. The obverse, however, uses a constant design -- a stunning depiction of the Statue of Liberty, along with the year of minting and United States coinage mottos.
