The United States Mint is adjusting prices for its American Eagle Platinum Proof Coins and American Eagle Platinum Uncirculated Coins.
Pursuant to the authority that 31 U.S.C. 5111(a) and 5112(k) grant the Secretary of the Treasury to mint and issue platinum coins, and to prepare and distribute numismatic items, the United States Mint mints and issues 2007 American Eagle Platinum Proof and Uncirculated Coins in four denominations with the following weights: one-ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, one-tenth ounce. The United States Mint also produces American Eagle Platinum Proof and Uncirculated four-coin sets that contain one coin of each denomination. In accordance with 31 U.S.C. 9701(b)(2)(B), the United States Mint is changing the price of these coins to reflect the increase in value of the underlying precious metal content of the coins—the result of increases in the market price of platinum.
Accordingly, effective February 1, 2008, the United States Mint will commence selling the following 2007 American Eagle Proof and Uncirculated Coins according to the following price schedule:
|American Eagle Platinum Proof Coins:|
|One-ounce platinum coin||$1,979.95|
