In 2008 the U.S. Mint offered 3 different versions of Platinum Eagle coins. It offered the regular Uncirculated versions, then it offered the regular Proof versions. Finally, it also offered the Special Burnbished Uncirculated versions with a W mint mark. After the sales figures came in, it was obvious that the 2008-W $10 Mint State coins would have a very small mintage for a modern bullion coin, iincluding for the Platinum Eagle series.
