Starting in 2008 the US Mint introduced additional numismatic versions of the Platinum Eagle coins as part of their holiday collection. The so-called collectible uncirculated versions were struck on specially burnished blanks and carried the "W" mint mark. The 2008-W Uncirculated Platinum Eagle coins featured the same "Legislative Muse" design found on the proof version. In announcing the release, the US Mint indicated that they were priced at the mid-point between the collectible proof versions and the bullion versions of the coin. The collectible uncirculated coins were available individually in four different weights or as a four coin set.
Proof and uncirculated versions of the coins are also made for coin collectors. The proof American Platinum Eagles are unique in the fact that they are the only U.S. bullion coins that have a yearly alternating design on the reverse.
Because it may be considered commodity platinum rather than a rare coin, the American Platinum Eagle may be placed in an Individual Retirement Account in the United States.
From 2005 to 2008, a three year series of designs known as "The Foundations of Democracy" was issued to represent the three branches of government
All denominations of the proof American Platinum Eagles carry the yearly design. These coins are the only U.S. bullion coins that change reverse designs every year.
