The United States Mint will start selling American Eagle palladium coins to authorized purchasers in September, Acting Principal Deputy Mint Director David Motl told Coin World on Aug. 1.

Motl revealed the start of sales in an interview with Coin World senior editor Paul Gilkes at the American Numismatic Association World’s Fair of Money in Denver.

The bullion coins will be struck at the Philadelphia Mint and like all American Eagle bullion coins, will not have a Mint mark.

A Proof version of the coin will be offered in 2018. It will be struck at the West Point Mint and bear the W Mint mark. It will have same designs as the 2017 bullion version.

The peak of Olympic gold coins:
Another column in the August 14 weekly issue of Coin World also profiles a rubber token that promotes a commonplace object we all use.

Motl told Gilkes that the bullion coins will be struck in sufficient quantities to meet anticipated demand.

As Coin World reported previously, the coin has been a long time coming. It was authorized under provisions of the American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin Act of 2010, which calls for production of a 1-ounce palladium coin with a $25 face value. The coin is an extension of the American Eagle bullion coin program.

Aw man ... I thought they'd managed to alloy mercury and palladium into a new metal

If its anything like that in hand, that's the coolest coin to come out of the mint in years.
Looks nice, wish they put it out when palladium was under 600, im not inclined to pay over 1k for it.

Supposedly only 15,000 minted. I can't find a complete description of the reverse of the coin. There is usually significance in how the olive branch is displayed. It looks like the Eagle is either planting the olive branch, or ripping it out of the ground. All it says on the Mint page, or elsewhere, is an Eagle and a branch! Nice description!

edit: I guess it's a Laurel branch

I guess if you have that kind of money to just throw around then maybe you're the last one laughing... Still, I can think of better ways to park 100 grand for sure.
