Why purchase this First Strike 2018-W American Platinum Eagle?
2018 marks the beginning of a three-coin American Platinum Eagle Proof series and the introduction of a common reverse design for the mini-series. Struck at the U.S. Mint's West Point facility, the beautifully designed coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9995 fine Platinum.
First Design of the Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin Series
The theme of "Life" is illustrated on the obverse, as Lady Liberty and a child plant seeds together, sustaining the cycle of life. Created by Justin Kunz and Phebe Hemphill, the image includes the inscriptions "LIFE," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," LIBERTY" and "2018."
Featured on the reverse is a breathtaking eagle in flight, an olive branch gripped in its talons. The design by Patricia Lucas-Morris, sculpted by Don Everhart, is inscribed "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," with denomination, weight, content, purity and the "W" Mint mark.
