2008-W Burnished Platinum Eagles

The 2008 Burnished Platinum Eagles represented the final year for the short lived numismatic offerings. These coins also have the distinction of carrying some of the lowest mintages in the history of United States coinage.

The reverse design for this year completed the “Foundations of American Democracy” design series with a representation of the judicial branch of government. The design depicted Lady Justice holding the scales of justice with a bald eagle appearing in the background.
