American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins were authorized by Congress in 2010 and first issued in 2017, they are the first and only official investment-grade palladium coins from the U.S. Mint whose weight, content and .9995 purity are guaranteed by the United States Government.
All American Eagles are legal tender coins, with their face value imprinted in U.S. dollars. Although their face value is largely symbolic, it provides proof of their authenticity as official U.S. coinage. The one-ounce palladium coin carries a face value of $25.
American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coins come in a one ounce size only.
The obverse design features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the “Mercury Dime” obverse by famed American coin designer and medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman.
The reverse design features a high-relief version of Weinman’s 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal reverse, which includes an eagle and a branch. In developing the coin, the United States Mint was able to use the original reverse plaster of the AIA gold medal. This is the first time that Weinman’s AIA design appears on a U.S. coin.
