Last year, claiming unprecedented demand for Eagle Silver and Gold Bullion, the Mint placed the Platinum Eagles on a delay in the early part of the year. Then in October, an announcement was made that the coins would not appear at all in 2009. As of yet, no confirmation on if and when the 2010 coins would become available has been released by the Mint

Each one ounce platinum coin is struck from 99.95% platinum to a diameter of 1.287 inches. Fractional sizes of 1/2 ounce, 1/4 ounce and 1/10 ounce are also typically struck.
