Why order this $100 American 2008-W 1 oz Platinum Eagle Proof?

Students of American history are sure to love this 2008-W 1 oz. Proof Platinum Eagle. It was the third and final issue in the "The Foundations of American Democracy" series, a series within the series of the Proof American Platinum Eagles. Platinum Eagles were first issued in 1997 and continue to be a popular choice among collectors who gather beyond gold and silver. Struck from one ounce of .9995 fine platinum at the West Point Mint, this coin bears a "W" mint mark at the base of the reverse design. It comes from a mintage of just 4,769 pieces.

Stunning Lady Justice Design by Joel Iskowitz

The obverse design was created by John Mercanti for the 1997 debut of the Platinum Eagle. Mercanti would go on to become Chief Engraver of the US Mint. It features a closeup look at the face of the Statue of Liberty looking directly at the holder. Her right shoulder rises on the left side of the coin raising her torch, which is unseen, while the seven rays of her crown represent the seven seas and seven continents through which freedom is meant to spread. Inscriptions on this face include "LIBERTY," "2008," and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST."

On Joel Iskowitz's reverse, Lady Justice stands before an eagle. Justice holds scales balanced from her right hand and a sword in her left. The sword represents the power of reason. "$100," "1 OZ.," and ".9995 PLATINUM" are among several inscriptions on this face.

Virtually Perfect PR69 DCAM

This coin earned Professional Coin Grading Service's (PCGS's) second highest grade, Proof 69 (PF69), which indicates that a coin is flawless as seen by the naked eye. Thanks to its deeply mirrored fields, it also earned Deep Cameo (DCAM) certification.
