CoinPalladium Ounce 2017 American Eagle

The American Palladium Eagle is the official palladium bullion coin of the United States. The coin has a face value of $25 and contains 99.95% fine palladium. It was authorised by the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010 which became Public Law 111-303 passed during the 111th United States Congress. The Palladium Eagle uses Adolph Weinman's obverse design of the Mercury Dime with Miss Liberty wearing a winged hat, while its reverse is based on Weinman's design which has been used since 1907 on the American Institute of Architects' (AIA) annual Gold Medal.

The coins are slightly heavier than one ounce, so as to have exactly one troy ounce of palladium content.

Within a plain rim, the obverse of the coin shows a portrait of Miss Liberty facing left, the tight curls of her hair caught in a Phrygian cap (pileus) which is winged.

Around above in large letters, the word LIBERTY is partly obscured by the top of the cap.

On two lines below left, the national motto IN · GOD WE · TRUST.

The designer's monogram WA (W over A), for Adolph Weinman, is in the field below right.

Below right, under the neck truncation of the portrait, the date: 2017.
