The mint is going to do a three year series for the 2018, 2019 and 2020 Platinum Proofs. Called the "Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin Series", it will feature "Life", "Liberty" and "Happiness".

Each year will have a different obverse, but all three will have the same reverse. All will be struck at West Point, and have a $100 par value.

2018 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin – Life

2019 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin – Liberty

2020 Preamble to the Declaration of Independence Platinum Proof Coin – Pursuit of Happiness

And the common reverse:

    Those look a heck of a lot better than the current coins. PS- I saw the "Life" one first, and was shocked (and happy) that the US was making an anti-abortion coin. Then I heard about and saw the rest of the series, lol.

    A women gives birth, Lady Liberty, and women make most coin collectors happy.

    Ugh. Argh. Busy designs with oddly out of place font for the titles.
    Damn, I love my Palladium even more.

    Now riding the swell in PM's and surf.

    I really like those designs.

    The Plat proofs have inspired some of the very best artistry in recent years. Maybe because they're a backwater, influences that have watered down so many other issues haven't noticed them.

    Hmm. As much as like Plats looks like 2018 Proof Palladium will be my choice
