Palladium Eagles represent a relatively recent addition to the United States Mint's lineup of precious metal investment coins, first introduced in 2017. 

Introduction to Palladium Eagles The American Palladium Eagle coin is part of the broader American Eagle program, which also includes gold, silver, and platinum coins. The Palladium Eagle is particularly notable for its unique metal content and striking design, making it an attractive option for serious collectors and investors. Each coin contains one ounce of .9995 fine palladium, ensuring its value is backed by the palladium content itself.

Design and Features The design of the Palladium Eagles pays homage to American numismatic history. The obverse features a high-relief likeness of "Winged Liberty" from the "Mercury Dime," originally designed by Adolph A. Weinman in 1916. This design choice bridges classic American coinage with modern minting techniques. The reverse also showcases Weinman's work, depicting a majestic eagle and a branch, which is a design originally conceived for the 1907 American Institute of Architects gold medal. The inclusion of these historical designs on a modern precious metal coin emphasizes the blend of tradition and innovation in the U.S. Mint's approach.

Minting and Variants Since its launch, the U.S. Mint has released the Palladium Eagle in various finishes, including proof and uncirculated versions, which are typically produced in limited quantities. Each release often sells out quickly due to high demand and the limited mintage, adding to the coin's allure and collectible value.

Certification and Authenticity Many collectors prefer to acquire certified examples of Palladium Eagles, which have been authenticated and graded by reputable third-party grading services like NGC or PCGS. These certifications ensure the coin’s condition and authenticity, providing additional security for investors and collectors alike.
