US Mint to Release Platinum Eagle in 2014; Last Production Run was 2008

For the first time since 2008, the US Mint will release Platinum Eagles to the public. We are receiving guidance that these coins will become available to the retail sector in February. We will post further information in this space as it becomes available.

Due to the limited production run of 2008 Platinum Eagles, these coins are now very difficult to find on the open market, with premiums now exceeding $200 per coin.
