About American Eagle Palladium Coins

The American Eagle Palladium Coin were the first palladium coins to qualify as an investment-grade commodity by the U.S. Government. Subsequently, investors can now take advantage of an easy route into investing one of rarest precious metals in the world. The coins have a high purity level of .9995, making them eligible for a Precious Metals IRA. With proof versions set to be released in 2018, the coins are certain to become popular with collectors, making them an excellent option for any financial portfolio.

History of American Eagle Palladium Coins

American Eagle Palladium Coins have a relatively short history in that they were only released in 2017. They were authorized by the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act in 2010, and the coin was first released on September 25, 2017. This was an important moment because it was the first precious metal coin to be added to the American Eagle program in 20 years following the release of the platinum version in 1997, which itself followed on from the gold and silver coins.

The bullion coin has a face value of 25 dollars, though the market value is a lot higher. The plan is for the bullion coins to be issued annually, and proof versions will also be introduced for collectors. The first version planned for release was 2018.

Why buy American Eagle Palladium Coins?

This is the only palladium bullion coin to be guaranteed by the U.S. Government for its purity, weight, and content, which makes it a tempting proposition for investors. Palladium itself is also popular with investors. It is a member of the Platinum group of metals, but while it is actually rarer than platinum its value is often lower. Lots of mints have palladium products, and the metal is also in high demand across numerous leading industries such as electronics, automotive and medical equipment.

You can invest in palladium in many ways, but the most secure and traditional option is to own the physical form in bars or coins. Not only are these tangible assets that are available instantly, they are also difficult to counterfeit because of the advanced engineering processes employed by the US Mint.

Furthermore, coins and bullion are easy to store, although palladium products purchased for an IRA has to be stored in a vault bank. They can be used to diversify your investment portfolio, and because they are recognized as a premium investment around the world are a good liquid investment.

Design of American Eagle Palladium Coins

The obverse design of American Eagle Palladium Coins is adapted from that used on the Mercury Dime from 1916, an image called the “Winged Liberty” designed by Adolph A. Weinman, the famous artist and coin designer. The reverse of the coin is based on his Eagle design dating back to 1907 for the American Institute of Architects gold medal.

American Eagle Palladium Coins are legal tender in the United States and the face value is printed on the reverse. While this is mainly symbolic, it is important because it proves their authenticity. There is only one version of the palladium coin, which weighs one ounce and has a face value of $25. Palladium itself is silvery in color, and is also resistant to oxidation.

American Eagle Palladium Coins: IRA Investment

American Eagle Palladium Coins make an ideal investment for IRAs. Palladium is one of the rarest precious metals in the world, and the fact it is available in coin form means it can easily be added to a financial portfolio.

Because the coins are minted in the purest form, with .9995 purity, they qualify as IRS-approved bullion, and the United States Mint guarantees that they meet the requirement.

By adding Palladium coins to an IRA, you add diversification to your retirement portfolio. With the proof version of the coin to be released from 2018 onwards, this will make the palladium American Eagle coins even more appealing to collectors and validate their billing as a liquid asset. Not only that, but the coins have a good potential to fetch more than the spot price.
