Why purchase this $100 American 2018-W 1 oz. Platinum Eagle Life Proof?
This 1 oz. Platinum 2018-W $100 American Eagle Life Proof marks a turning point in the Platinum Eagle series.

Exquisite Life Design by Justin Kunz
The obverse was designed by Justin Kunz and features Liberty teaching a child how to sow a field, which sustains life. She also carries a sword, which protects it. Patricia Morris's reverse design shows an eagle carrying an olive branch.
Virtually Flawless PF69 UC ER
This coin received certifications as an Ultra Cameo and an Early Releases from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. The former indicates that the contrasts between its frosted devices and mirrored fields are particularly sharp, while the latter means that NGC received it for grading within 30 days of the release of the coin from the Mint. The coin was also awarded a grade of Proof 69 (PF69), which is given to coins that have a minuscule imperfection or two but appear flawless to the naked eye.
