As the American Eagle Platinum Proof Coin Program entered its third decade in 2018, the United States Mint introduced a new series featuring three new obverse (heads) designs by one designer and one new common reverse (tails) design. The 2018-2020 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin Series features a newly designed one-ounce 99.95 percent platinum proof coin issued in each of the series’ three years. Visit our information page on the American Eagle Proof and Uncirculated Coin Program for more information on this exciting new series.
The obverse design of the 2019 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin portrays Lady Liberty keeping watch over prairies, lakes, and mountains as pioneers head westward. The wild terrain featured in the background evokes the quintessential American spirit to explore new territory and the freedom to pursue new landscapes, ideas, and ways of life. In the foreground, Lady Liberty’s lips are parted, symbolizing freedom of speech. Her torch is an emblem of the guiding light that liberty provides, while the open book represents the rule of law and its equal application. The obverse designs for the three-year series were all created by Artistic Infusion Program (AIP) Designer Justin Kunz.
The common reverse design for this series depicts an eagle in flight with an olive branch in its talons. It was created by AIP Designer Patricia Lucas-Morris.
Each platinum coin is encapsulated and packaged in a black velvet satin-lined presentation case accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
