2006-W Burnished Platinum Eagles

The 2006 Burnished Platinum Eagle represented the start of a new type of numismatic offering for the series. The coins were struck on specially burnished blanks with the “W” mint mark and an annually rotating reverse design.

For this year, the designs featured an image of the Legislative Muse. This began a three year design series “The Foundations of American Democracy” depicting the three branches of United States government.
