CoinPlatinum Ounce 2010 American Eagle, Proof

The American Platinum Eagle is the official platinum bullion coin of the United States. The coins were initially released by the United States Mint in several sizes and denominations, but in late 2008 the fractional denominations were discontinued, leaving only the one ounce. The Platinum Eagle is authorised by the United States Congress, and is backed by the United States Mint for weight, content, and purity. The Platinum Ounce is denominated with a face value of $100, but the intrinsic value of the metal is significantly higher.

After the first year of issue, there are two versions of the coin issued annually: bullion with the "definitive" soaring eagle reverse, and a proof with a different design every year.

This design is the second in a six-year program that commemorates the core concepts of American democracy by featuring the six principles of the Preamble of the United States Constitution.

The 2010 coin design is emblematic of the theme To Establish Justice, the second principle found in the Preamble. The design features a blindfolded justice - symbolising impartiality - holding traditional scales and carrying a branch of laurel. Instead of a prominent depiction of the American Eagle, there is a small American Eagle “privy mark” - from an original “coin punch” identified at the United States Mint at Philadelphia.

The 2010 coin’s reverse was designed by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Master Designer Donna Weaver and sculpted by United States Mint Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill.
