The United States Mint will begin selling the 2024 First Amendment of the United States Constitution – Right to Assemble American Eagle Platinum Proof Next week. The 99.999% platinum proof is the fourth of five Eagles honoring the United States Constitution. Pricing for the Right to Assemble Platinum Proof has not been released, but the Mint has published that only 12,000 of the coins will be available with a household purchase limit of three coins.
The five-year (2021-2025) First Amendment to the United States Constitution Platinum Proof Coin Series features a new obverse design each year of issuance. These 99.95 percent platinum proof coins reflect the five freedoms enshrined in the First Amendment—“Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”
This series uses the lifecycle of the oak tree from seedling to a mighty oak as a metaphor for our country’s growth as a Nation that values freedom. Liberty grows to a thing of strength and beauty from a seed—our Bill of Rights. Each of the freedoms enumerated in the First Amendment contributes to the growth and development of the Nation.
The First Amendment series of platinum American Eagles will continue through 2025 with each year honoring one of the five freedoms granted to Americans in the Constitution of the United States.
