The United States Mint has resumed minting American Platinum Eagle bullion coins after more than a five year gap. Production had been suspended in late 2008 in order to devote additional resources to the production of gold and silver bullion coins.

The American Platinum Eagle was introduced in 1997, complementing the US Mint’s existing gold and silver bullion coin offerings. The platinum coins were struck in .9995 purity and available in one ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, and one-tenth ounce sizes carrying legal tender values of $100, $50, $25, and $10, respectively. Similar to other US Mint bullion products, the coins were distributed through a network of authorized purchasers.
