Modern U.S. Platinum Eagle Proof Set
Platinum bullion coinage has been struck since 1997, in tenth-ounce, quarter-ounce, half-ounce and one ounce weights; $10, $25, $50 and $100 denominations, respectively. All contain 99.95% pure platinum. These magnificent coins depict the Statue of Liberty on the obverse, with different distinctive reverse designs for each year depicting an American landscape scene and a soaring eagle. Many collectors assemble sets of each date and denomination for the joy of collecting, as well as, a systematic method of accumulating platinum for long-term investment. Reference books on American platinum Statue of Liberty issues include A GUIDE BOOK OF UNITED STATES COINS by R.S.Yeoman.
