The following is a Press Release from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) announcing a special label and designations for the upcoming 2020-W American Eagle Palladium 1-Ounce coin. This year, the United States Mint is only releasing 10,000 of these special Eagles with sale set to being on September 24, 2020 at Noon Eastern.

On September 24 at noon (EDT), the U.S. Mint is releasing the 2020-W American Palladium Eagle in a new Uncirculated finish. Only 10,000 of the coins are being minted, which is the lowest mintage of any Palladium Eagle to date.

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) is offering its Palladium Eagle special label for no additional charge to create a distinguished presentation for these historic coins. For coins submitted within the first 30 days of release, the popular NGC Early Releases and First Releases designations are also available.

Palladium Eagles were first released in 2017 as a one-ounce bullion coin. In 2018, a Proof version was produced, followed by a Reverse Proof in 2019. The coins are composed of one troy ounce of .9995 fine palladium.

All of the Palladium Eagles showcase high relief designs by Adolph Weinman, whose work in the early 20th century produced some of America’s most admired coins. A reincarnation of Weinman’s Winged Liberty from the Mercury dime is featured on the obverse, and the powerful eagle on the reverse is from the American Institute of Architects gold medal.

The NGC coin description and Palladium Eagle special label articulate the coins’ high relief design, eagle motif, and palladium composition.
