US Mint introduces platinum coin

A new coin set in platinum and worth $1,792 has been released by the body responsible for printing and forging new currency.

The US Mint has launched the 2009 American Eagle Platinum coin, of which only 8,000 will be created, and will unveil five more different designs up until 2014.

Based on the six principles of the preamble of the United States Constitution as picked by chief justice John G Roberts Jr, the first platinum coins feature an image of the Statue of Liberty on one side and the inscription A More Perfect Union on the other.
Future coins will follow the themes of justice, domestic tranquility, common defense, general welfare and posterity.

Orders are limited to five per purchase.

Many owners of jewellery stores across America are still looking to purchase platinum coins and jewellery, despite difficult economic conditions, according to the Richmond Register.
