According to a recent article in CoinWorld, there is still a chance that the 10th Anniversary Platinum Eagle set may be released during 2007. This set would include a reverse proof Platinum Eagle coin. In a previous post, I had noticed that this potential set was not included in the Mint’s 2007 Holiday catalog.
The Coin World article from this week included this statement from the Mint’s Office of Public Affiars.
“The United States Mint is in the review and approval process for mintages and pricing of the product. Pricing is based on the market price of platinum at the time of purchase. Additionally, pricing will be monitored and adjusted, if necessary, based on fluctuations in the market.”
Mint officials had previously released some details of the proposed set. It would contain two coins, a half ounce proof 2007-W Platinum Eagle and a half ounce reverse proof 2007-W Platinum Eagle. The set has been formatted differently from last year’s 20th Anniversary Gold and Silver Eagle sets due to the high bullion price of platinum. Those sets had contained three coins each, a one ounce uncirculated, one ounce proof, and one ounce reverse proof.
