This 2017 Platinum American Eagle PF70 is an example of the largest variety of Platinum Eagle, weighing 1 troy ounce. This coin carries a face value of $100 and is made from .9995 platinum. This gorgeous coin embodies the same aesthetic that previous Platinum Eagle coins in the past have had. On the obverse of the coin there is a portrait of Lady Liberty. The year and phrase IN GOD WE TRUST is located to the right of her face. On the reverse is an eagle with its arms spread wide, soaring over a horizon that features a sun with emanating rays. The denomination of the coin sits below the eagle and the words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA rest above.
Even though the iconic patriotic theme persists in coin iterations throughout the years, these rounds are the only U.S. bullion coins that have a reverse side that changes annually. It's no wonder then that these Platinum Eagles are some of the most popular platinum bullion pieces the world over. The PF70 grade on this coin represents the highest proof score given out via the Sheldon scale. Whether you're an investor looking to diversify your portfolio with precious metals or just an avid coin collector, you're sure to treasure this modern American piece of currency.
