2018 Palladium Coin Highlights:

  • Each coin contains 1 oz. of .9995 Palladium
  • First Proof Palladium American Eagle coin to be minted in the U.S.
  • Backed by the United States government
  • Face Value of $25
  • Limited mintage: 15,000
  • Obverse: A young depiction of Liberty with winged Phrygian cap, reminiscent of the Roman god Mercury
  • Reverse: Majestic eagle perched atop a rock
  • Features the West Point Mint's "W" mintmark

A palladium version of the beloved American Eagle coin series was authorized by the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010. The act called for a $25 coin of an appropriate size and thickness, as determined by the Secretary, that weighs 1 troy ounce and contains .9995 fine palladium.

The law allows for the U.S. Treasury Secretary to issue these Palladium Eagles in both uncirculated and Proof versions, with the latter being the only version permitted for production at the West Point Mint. Also, the "surface treatment" of the coins is required to differ "in some material way from that of the preceding year," meaning that if the Palladium Eagle program continues, other finishes will undoubtedly be employed in future years runs, making the 2018-W issues that much more unique and valuable.

The 2018 obverse also bears the word "LIBERTY" spaced to stretch across the full top half rim of the coin, along with "IN GOD WE TRUST," its mintmark, "2018" and Weinman's initials occupying the bottom half. The reverse carries a high-relief replica of Weinman's 1907 American Institute of Architects' Gold Medal design. On it is an American eagle bowing to grasp an olive branch in his beak surrounded by the words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "PLURIBUS UNUM."

The coin's precious metal specifications are also struck near the bottom, while its $25 face value sits to the left of the eagle.

Why Should I invest in this coin?

2018 Palladium Eagles are on track to meet, if not exceed, levels of demand and value of their 2017 predecessors, and is projected to be a great, long-lasting way to bolster any investment portfolio.

*Due to the limited quantity available, there is a limit of 5 per household in effect.
