The largest type of the Platinum Eagle bullion, this 2017 Platinum American Eagle PF70 is 1 troy ounce. It carries a face value of $100, but the .9995 platinum it's composed of ensures its actual worth to be quite a bit higher. The design of the bullion coin is classic, and the Platinum Eagles made by the U.S. Mint changes its reverse design annually. This year features an eagle flying over a horizon, with a sun just visible, its rays streaming out toward the soaring bird. The obverse depicts a portrait of the iconic Lady Liberty statue, the year of issue and the words IN GOD WE TRUST sitting just to her right.
Looking at this design, it's easy to understand why Platinum Eagles from the U.S. Mint are some of the most popular platinum pieces in the world. This coin carries a Sheldon score of 70, hence the PF70 classification. This coin can be used in precious metal IRAs or just stored to diversify your general investments. It also makes a fantastic gift for the avid numismatist in your life.
