The American Palladium Eagle series began in 2017 with the release of the first ever Palladium Eagle issued by the United States Mint. This series marked the first time since 1997 that a major change to the American Eagle series was made. The inaugural release with a mintage of just 15,000 coins, sold out quickly at the Mint. Since then, the series has continued to thrill collectors around the world.

Struck from .9995 fine palladium, the series features not one, but two designs by numismatic legend, Adolph Weinman, whose work also appears on the obverse of the American Silver Eagle. The coins are struck in high relief, with the 2017 release marking the first time the United States Mint struck a high relief coin that was not made from gold.
