WASHINGTON – The United States Mint (Mint) will begin accepting orders for the 2023 American Eagle One Ounce Palladium Uncirculated Coin (product code 23EK) on September 7 at noon EDT.
The coin contains one ounce of 99.95 percent palladium and is the collector version of the official United States Mint American Eagle One Ounce Palladium Bullion Coin, which launched in 2017. Finishes on collector coins in this program may alternate each year. In 2018, the Mint issued a proof finish palladium coin, followed by a reverse proof finish coin in 2019. This collector coin was offered in uncirculated finish in 2020, in a proof finish in 2021, and a reverse proof finish in 2022.
Palladium coin designs are based on those by famed American coin designer and medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman. The obverse (heads) features a high-relief likeness of “Winged Liberty” from the “Mercury Dime” obverse. In keeping with the original coin, inscriptions are “LIBERTY,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “2023,” and Weinman’s distinct initials. The coin’s reverse (tails) features a high-relief version of Weinman’s 1907 American Institute of Architects Gold Medal reverse design, which includes an eagle and a branch. Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES of AMERICA,” “$25,” “1 OZ. Pd .9995 FINE,” and “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” Pd is the chemical symbol for palladium.
Each coin is encapsulated and packaged in a satin-lined gray leatherette presentation case. A certificate of authenticity is included.
