Coin Highlights

  • The 1/2 oz Platinum American Eagle is a popular choice for investors and collectors seeking to diversify their portfolio with precious metals.
  • Each coin contains 1/2 troy ounce of .9995 fine platinum, making it a valuable and high-purity investment.
  • The Platinum American Eagle is backed by the United States government for its weight, content, and purity, providing reassurance and authenticity.
  • With a diameter of 27 mm and a thickness of 1.75 mm, the coin has a compact and convenient size for storage and display.
  • The obverse of the coin features a striking image of the Statue of Liberty, symbolizing freedom and liberty.
  • The reverse may showcase a bald eagle in flight, with the sun and a rising moon in the background in some variations, a close-up profile of an American eagle, or other depictions of an eagle - representing the resilience and strength of the United States.
  • The Platinum American Eagle has a legal tender face value of $50 (USD), providing it with additional recognition and acceptance in the marketplace.
  • The coin's design and composition make it eligible for inclusion in a self-directed precious metal Individual Retirement Account (IRA), offering potential tax advantages for qualified investors.
  • The 1/2 oz Platinum American Eagle is a limited production coin, adding to its collectibility and potential for increased value over time.

This US coin, a key member of the Platinum Eagle series, holds the distinction of being the first investment-grade platinum offering from the U.S. Mint, making it a sought-after piece for both bullion collectors and investors. Many customers experience the benefits of holding onto these investment collectibles.

Crafted meticulously from one half of an ounce of .9995 fine or 99.95% pure platinum, this coin boasts exceptional purity and weight, enhancing its value and appeal as a collectible and an investment asset. Its purity also makes it eligible for storage in a self-directed IRA.

Its obverse is graced by the “Statue of Liberty” form design, a proof of masterful creativity by John Mercanti, capturing the spirit of freedom and democracy that the United States embodies.

The reverse, initially featuring a design by Thomas D. Rogers, typically depicts the majestic American bald eagle, symbolizing the nation's strength and the government's endorsement.

A unique aspect of this coin is its legal tender status, with a face value of $50 as authorized by the United States government, although its financial market value is significantly higher, driven by its weight in pure platinum content, collectability, and importance in investment portfolios.

This platinum bullion coin, transcending mere monetary value, represents a fusion of artistic excellence and the enduring ideals of the United States, making it a prominent option and meaningful addition to any numismatic collection or financial portfolio.

Invest in the 1/2 oz Platinum American Eagle and add a precious and rare metal to your investment portfolio. With its high purity, stunning design, and government backing, this coin represents a tangible asset that can help safeguard your wealth.
