First-day sales of the 2019-Proof American Platinum Eagles hit 3,225 coins, according to United States Mint spokesman Michael White.
Ordering opened Thursday for the 1-ounce .9995 fine platinum ‘Liberty’ coin which features the second of three designs from the Mint’s Preamble to the Declaration of Independence series.
