The United States Mint this week updated its online store with information, images and limits for the 2018-W $25 Proof American Palladium Eagle. The 1-ounce, .9995 palladium proof coin launches on Sept. 6. at noon Eastern Time.
In 2017, the U.S. Mint introduced the bullion American Palladium Eagle. (See photos of the coin.) All 15,000 sold on their Sept. 25, 2017 release day. The Mint has not announced if a bullion version will be issued this year.
The collector edition for release next month feature the same designs as last year’s bullion Palladium Eagle.
Obverses (heads side) offer an adaptation of Adolph A. Weinman’s ‘Winged Liberty’ design first created for the 1916 dime.
The reverse (tails side) is based upon Weinman’s Eagle design for the 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) gold medal. (Read more about the designs.)
Both coin sides are in a collector proof finish with an added appeal of high relief. Edges are reeded.
Struck at the West Point Mint, each has a diameter of 1.340 inches (34.036 mm) and weights 1.0005 troy oz. (31.120 grams).
The U.S. Mint has set the coin’s mintage at 15,000 pieces. In addition, there will be an ordering restriction of one coin per household.
Its price has yet to be announced.
