For 2004, sculptor Donna Weaver, who also designed the American Buffalo Silver Dollar and several state quarters, took the helm from Maletsky. Her design kicked off the five-year Foundations of Democracy series. It was inspired by a classic Daniel Chester sculpture titled “America,” with a cape thrown confidently over America’s shoulder. Weaver placed her initials (D.W.) just above the center point of the throne’s base. The coin’s purity and weight were also separated for the first time. The “Foundations” series culminated in 2008 with a 1oz Platinum Proof celebrating the Judicial Branch of the federal government. All the Foundations of Democracy Series were minted in 4-coin sets containing $10, $25, $50, and $100 denominations. 2008 was the last year the U.S. Mint made proof of Platinum American Eagles in a four-coin set.
