To help commemorate the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the American Eagle Platinum Coin Program, the United States Mint offered a limited-edition two-coin set. The proof version of the American Eagle Platinum Coin featuring a cameo image floating on a mirror-like background, and the first-time offering a reverse proof version of the American Eagle Platinum Coin featuring a frosted background and an enhanced brilliant, mirror-like finish on the raised elements of the coin. This is an enhanced reverse proof version because it is not an exact opposite polish of the regular proof version. The design elements on the enhanced reverse proof platinum coin were strategically selected to feature the proof, mirror-like finish in contrast to frosted background design elements to enhance the entire image.

Each of the 2007-dated coins carry the "W" mint mark, indicating their production at the United States Mint at West Point. State-of-the-art technology was used to craft the dies for the reverse proof coins.
