Why order this $25 American 2018-W 1 oz High Relief Palladium Eagle Proof?
This High Relief Palladium Eagle Proof is a fantastic option for collectors who love the sleek, elegant look of recently minted coins but who admire iconic designs from America's rich numismatic history. The first Palladium Eagle Proof geared toward collectors, this coin was struck from one ounce of .9995 fine platinum at the West Point Mint. It bears that mint's "W" mint mark in the lower left of the obverse. It is part of a mintage of just 15,000 pieces.
Historic Winged Liberty Design by Adolph Weinman
On the obverse is Adolph Weinman's iconic Winged Liberty design, which first appeared on the dime in 1916. Weinman depicts Liberty in left-side profile wearing a winged Phrygian cap, which he intended to represent freedom of thought. The coin was often referred to as the "Mercury dime" because so many people confused the figure for the Roman god of that name.
On the reverse is Weinman's design for the 1907 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal, the first ever such medal. An eagle is pulling a laurel branch out of a rock. The bird holds its wings back, offering a stunningly detailed look at its entire body. Inscriptions on this face include the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ. PD .9995 FINE," and its face value, "$25."
Impeccable PF70 UC ER with Adolph Weinman Label
This coin received Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70, which means that it is flawless as seen under 5x magnification. It also earned Ultra Cameo certification for its sharp contrasts between deeply mirrored fields and heavily frosted devices and Early Releases certification, which indicates that NGC received it within 30 days of its initial mint release. Grading information is provided on a label that celebrates the man who created both of its designs, Adolph Weinman.
