Eagle guarding a cornucopia of riches, Weaver, mintage $100 PR 6,602. John M. Mercanti (obverse), Donna Weaver (reverse). West Point Mint, .9995 platinum, $100 - 1.0005 oz (31.120 grams; 1 oz actual platinum weight), 32.7 mm diameter. Average spot price of Platinum in 2005 was $896.87. The bold obverse design is a full close-up of the Statue of Liberty's face, entitled "Liberty Looking to the Future." The reverse is a "Traditional heraldic eagle design of a bald eagle with outstretched wings, guarding with a shield a cornucopia of American riches - wheat, grapes, and other agricultural bounty." The Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee teamed with Mint artists and the Commission on Fine Arts to create more patriotic themes. Years 2003 through 2005 used the patriotic themes with the bald eagle figuring prominently in the design. Quotes per Edmund C. Moy's American Gold and Platinum Eagles book (c) 2014.
