    You are a little late to the party, however good deals can still be found.
    Prices have been quickly rising.

    They'll come back down. Look at platinum eagles

    If there were a snore emoji on the site, I would use it here. These palladium things don't interest me in the least.

    Retired dealer and avid collector of U.S. type coins, 19th century presidential campaign medalets and selected medals. In recent years I have been working on a set of British coins - at least one coin from each king or queen who issued pieces that are collectible. I am also collecting at least one coin for each Roman emperor from Julius Caesar to ... ?

    While I am not interested in a palladium coin... I do like the reverse Eagle...that is very nice indeed. I would like to see that same design replace the reverse on the ASE.... what a beautiful coin that would be..... and then issue a UHR ASE in silver..........Cheers, RickO

    Yep, that ASE eagle reverse emblem is a bit dated.

    My only b**** on the Pally eagle reverse is the proximity of the wing to the letters on the reverse, Clearance should have been provided. Design is excellent. A UHR? Make it 1.5 oz, and increase the diameter, certainly the USMiint could do this with current equipment.

    @epcjimi1 ....Great idea.... I like the increased weight and a slight diameter increase... not much, to be sure it is an impressive UHR..... Wow... what a great coin that would be....Cheers, RickO

    I would like to use a ZzzZzzZzzzzzzzz for the Palladium Eagle also.

    Now if the US Mint could figure out a way to strike a Coin out of the brittle Rhodium , now THAT would be an EVENT to wake up the entire World.

    From what I understand striking Rhodium is like striking glass. Shatter City!

    Mintage of the 1986 Gold Eagle: 1,362,650

    Mintage of the 1986 SAE: 5,393,005

    Mintage of the 1997 Platinum Eagle: 56,000

    Mintage of the 2009 Ultra High Relief (UHR) $20: 114,427

    Mintage of the 2017 Palladium Eagle: 15,000. Maybe.

    You might be able to pick up a 2017 PdE in the Spring for spot + $10. But if the mintage holds at 15,000, it sure won't be mine. >:)

    First of all, I love Palladium. And a few other precious metals.
    Secondly, I love this design. From what I've seen in photos and the video attached to the other thread, it is simply stunning.
    Thirdly, thank you Weiss for posting the mintages of the past and the current offerings.
    I think I will like the proof, too.

    Now riding the swell in PM's and surf.
