Variety Has It's Time And Place

Most collectors amass coins by adding different dates and different mintmarks to their collection. For example, a set of Morgan Dollars is not complete with one single 1881-dated coin struck at the Philadelphia Mint. As a true collector, you also need... 

  • 1881-CC mintmarked coin, stuck at the Carson City Mint
  • 1881-O mintmarked coin, struck at the New Orleans Mint
  • 1881-S mintmarked coin, struck at the San Francisco Mint

20th Anniversary Platinum American Eagle Release

20th anniversary edition American eagle in platinum showing lady liberty side

The U.S. Mint will soon release the 2017 version of its 1 oz Proof Platinum American Eagle coin. These coins are the U.S. Mint’s answer to the popular Canadian Platinum Maple Leaf and Australian Platinum Koala coins.

The cool thing about the Platinum American Eagle Proof coins is they are the only U.S. Proof coins with a reverse design that changes annually.
