While one of the most expensive bullion coins you can buy platinum is a great hard currency to buy in times of economic uncertainty. The official US Mint American Eagle Platinum bullion coins are available in 4 sizes: 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz – each certified containing 99.95 percent pure platinum.
Representing the Judicial Branch the reserve side of the 2008 American Platinum Eagle is the third design in the new series. Beginning in 2006, the reverse design has featured an image emblematic of one of the three institutional foundations of our American democracy – the Legislative, the Executive and the Judicial branches. This year’s design features Lady Justice; in her right hand, the scales representing the delicate balance of the law. Her left hand holds a sword, which signifies the power that is held by the justices making the decision. The bald eagle in the background is featured watching over our firm foundation of democracy.
