To Insure Domestic Tranquility, Iskowitz, mintage $100 PR 14,790. John M. Mercanti (obverse), Joel Iskowitz (reverse). West Point Mint, .9995 platinum, $100 - 1.0005 oz (31.120 grams; 1 oz actual platinum weight), 32.7 mm diameter, 2.39 mm thickness. Average spot price of Platinum in 2011 was $1,721,86. 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 "To Insure Domestic Tranquility" as a part of the preamble of the U.S. Constitution. The design depicts the harvest goddess emerging from a field of wheat, symbolizing the vastness of our Nation and its wide diversity of views. Due to the high price of platinum during this year, the Mint's issue price was $2,092. Metal prices were strong this year. Years 2009 through 2014 launched the core concepts of American democracy by highlighting the preamble of the U.S. Constitution. Only for the 1/2 ounce in 2007 was a reverse proof issued for the platinum eagle's 10th anniversary. The fractional ounce coins stopped production as of 2008. Quotes per Edmund C. Moy's American Gold and Platinum Eagles book (c) 2014.

In 2011, the U.S. Mint only produced a $100 Proof Platinum Eagle. It did not produce any $10, $25 or $50 Mint State or Proof Platinum Eagle. The Mint also did not produce any $100 Mint State Platinum Eagle.

Obverse: Same Statue of Liberty design which was introduced in the Platinum Eagle seires in 1997. 

Reverse: Theme for this years design is entitled "To insure Domestic Tranquility". This is the third of six different principles of American Democracy which are written in the United States Constitution.
