The US Mint has just announced the release date for 2008 Proof American Eagle Platinum coins as Monday, May 5, 2008. The brief product information update is here, although for some reason the date is only visible in the RSS feed here.
Pricing information for the upcoming coins has not yet been released.
Most of the 2007 Proof Platinum Eagles have been under product suspension due to the “increasing market value of platinum.” In total the Proof Platinum Eagles have only been available for sale at the Mint for less than one week. See my previous post on 2007 Burnished and Proof Platinum Eagles for more details.
With the release of the 2008 dated coins coming next Monday, it looks like the 2007 dated coins will not go back on sale. I’ll post further details on the 2008 release when they become available.
