Details of the 1/2 Ounce American Platinum Eagle

The newest six year series of US Platinum Eagles was launched in 2009 and features a changing design on the reverse. Each annual design depicts a theme that highlights aspects of American democracy. The inspiration for these themes came from narratives issued by the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court, at the behest of the United States Mint. In addition to the theme, the reverse of each 1/2 oz Platinum Eagle shows the face value, the weight, and the platinum fineness.

The obverse of the 1/2 oz Platinum Eagle does not change from year to year, with the exception of the mint year, which is displayed underneath the portrait of the iconic Statue of Liberty. Regardless of mint year, these 1/2 Ounce Platinum Eagles are in brilliant uncirculated condition, as we source all bullion coins direct from the mints and distributors themselves. Please note -- the mint dates of these 1/2 oz Platinum Eagles varies, as the coins are taken at random from our inventory. CBMint shall attempt to honor requests for specific mint years, but it is not guaranteed. Include any such request with your order and we shall try to honor it.
