1997 was the Inaugural issue for the Platinum Eagles and in order to make the series special even the business strikes received custom die work. This coin and its succeeding series members enjoyed a reverse proof appearance long before the concept was popularized by the anniversary set reverse proofs that came out in 2006.

Many Platinum Eagle collectors have the tendency to assemble their sets by type and one of the early reverse proof appearance issues with the Eagle over the Sun reverse is normally required. The inaugural issue is preferable if it is an outstanding example. The problem is this coin was issued in bulk and its population did not receive the same single issue care that the later burnished issues did so it can be hard to come by in the state of perfection that moderns collectors like to see. This is both a problem and an opportunity.
