Design of the 1 oz. American Eagle Palladium Bullion Coin
The obverse side of the American Eagle Palladium bullion coin features a high-relief image of “Winged Liberty.”
The design was taken from the obverse of the “Mercury Dime” that was produced from 1916 to 1945.
The design was created by famed American coin designer and medallic artist Adolph A. Weinman.
Adolf A. Weinman's initial's are found behind the bottom of Winged Liberty's neck.
Across the top of the bullion coin is the word 'LIBERTY.'
'IN GOD WE TRUST' and the 'Year of Issue' are found on the bottom half of the palladium bullion coin.
The reverse design of the palladium bullion coin features an eagle design taken from Adolf Weinman's reverse of the 1907 American Institute of Architects (AIA) Gold Medal.
The design displays a robust eagle holding down a large olive branch on a large stone with its right talon while trying to snap a smaller olive branch off with its beak.
The words "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM" are inscribed around the perimeter of the bullion coin.
"E PLURIBUS UNUM" is Latin for 'Out of Many, One.'
Other inscriptions include the palladium bullion coin's Face Value of '$25' and "1OZ. Pd .9995 FINE."
The edge of the gold bullion coin is Reeded.
