A series of new coins, American Palladium Eagles, are set join the United States Mint family of gold, silver and platinum coins.
President Obama signed the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010 into Public Law 111-303 on Tuesday, December 14, 2010. It went through the House and Senate as H.R. 6161, which was introduced by Rep. Denny Rehberg of Montana on September 22, 2010 [...]
The American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010 will soon become law. The Act passed in the House on September 29 and then in the Senate on November 30. It is now cleared for the White House.
When the Act is signed into law as the President is expected to do within a week, the United States Mint family of American Eagle products will expand to include palladium coins along with the gold, silver and platinum coins that have been produced for years [...]
Congressional members have been voting on a series of bills as they prepare to leave Washington and return to their home districts to focus full time on their re-elections.
One of the bills would authorize American Palladium Eagles. The other would authorize Proof American Eagles, giving them equal weight to bullion coins. Both were introduced in the U.S. House of Representatives on September 22, 2010. Each were voted on exactly one week later -- supersonic speed for coin legislation. They passed on Wednesday, September 29, 2010, and now await action in the U.S. Senate.
Placing the United States Mint one step closer to striking a new precious metal American Eagle, legislation was introduced Wednesday, September 22, 2020, calling for new palladium versions of the coin to be produced.
Referred to as the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010, numbered H.R. 6166, the legislation was introduced by Rep. Denny Rehberg (R-MT).
H.R. 6166 places several stipulations on the proposed coins. First, and perhaps most interesting, is the choice of designs to be used on the obverse and reverse of the strike.
