$10 American Eagle Platinum Bullion US Coins

The $10 US Platinum Eagle Coins begin their mintage in the year 1997 and consist of .9995% platinum and unlike its counterpart, the American Gold Eagle, the Platinum Eagle is minted in the denominations of $10, $25, $50 and $100. This makes the $100 Platinum Eagle the highest denomination of any US Coin in US history.

As are all US Bullion Coins, the Platinum Eagles are the only bullion coins in the world that our guaranteed for their weight, content and purity and are the most purchased bullion coins in the world. This fact makes the Platinum Eagle the most collected platinum bullion coin. All Proof Platinum Bullions coins are minted at the West Point Mint and this is designated by the "W" mint mark, which is located in various locations on the reverse of each coin.

The obverse design features a bust of The Statue of Liberty and the reverse features a flying eagle with Earth and the Sun in the background. Beginning in 1998 the reverse of the proof issues were changed and called "Vistas of Liberty" and consisted of five different design changes spanning 1998-2002: 1998 Eagle Over New England, 1999 Eagle Above Southeastern Wetlands, 2000 Eagles Above America's Heartland, 2001 Eagle Above America's Southwest, 2002 Eagle Fishing in America's Northwest.

In 2003, a new design for the proof reverse were was chosen, and a new reverse design has been selected each year to date. The first year, 1997, was the only year that the proof and business strike Platinum Eagle had the same reverse design.

The $10 Platinum Eagle boast extremely low mintages with the low mint state year as 2006 at $11,001 and the highest mintage mint state year is 1997. The proofs are even lower in mintages with only 5,138 minted for 2008-W Proofs and then you have three Burnished years of 2006-W, 2007-W and 2008-W with mintages even lower than the proofs.

The goal for the most serious collectors is finding what is called condition grades and that's coins that grade MS70. MS70 is the highest grade a coin can get and a $10 Platinum Eagle dated 2000 sold for $7,500 and any date grade this high will realize five figure premiums.
