2013-W $100 Statue of Liberty, DCAM PR70DCAM Certification #29959065, PCGS #518216
Young America against a backdrop of interlocking gears, symbolizing the interconnection of power between the states and the national government, Iskowitz, mintage $100 PR 5,763 last reported sales. 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. Platinum spot price in 2013 reached a high of $1,736 and a low of $1,317. A very volatile year for platinum prices. The average spot price was $1,515 in 2013 for an ounce of platinum. 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 Promote the General Welfare, the fifth principle in the Preamble of the U.S. Constitution." The highly attractive design of this year's reverse caused collector demand to purchase 4,100 coins in the first 10 weeks of sales. I think this design is both attractive and very classical. Quotes per Edmund C. Moy's American Gold and Platinum Eagles book (c) 2014.
