Why purchase this 1997-W $10 Platinum Eagle NGC PF70 UC?

1997 marked the debut of the American Platinum Eagle bullion and proof coin series. These coins, like their silver and gold counterparts, are the U.S. Mint’s flagship platinum bullion coin series aimed at both platinum stackers and modern U.S. coin collectors. These coins were created because of interest within the numismatic community for an American platinum bullion product, and because the U.S. Mint and U.S. government did want to cede this market to other world mints, which had been producing such coins since the 1980’s. The $10, or 1/10th troy oz., proof coin from this series in 1997 was issued both individually and as part of a four-coin set with the other platinum coins from that year. It sold 36,996 coins.

NGC has graded 1,509 of these coins, and they breakdown as 61% proof 69, and 39% as proof 70 coins. This stunning proof 70 coin is the finest quality you can find of the first year of issue of what is today an iconic modern coin series. The patriotic design with a close-up of the head of the Statue of Liberty on the obverse, and a soaring eagle on the reverse, is sure to inspire any collector. This coin would also be perfect for a registry set.
