2007 W Proof Frosted FREEDOM One Ounce American Platinum Eagle - 1 oz Platinum $100
One of the greatest errors of this series is the 2007 W Proof "Frosted FREEDOM" variety of the 1 oz $100 American Platinum Eagle. In the standard proof coins: The word "FREEDOM" on the banner on the reverse of the coin is supposed to have a mirror-like reflective surface within the letters themselves. In the "Frosted FREEDOM" variety - these words are unfinished and so they appear to have a frosty satin finish found throughout the rest of the design. This variety wasn't even discovered until 2011 - yet these coins are extremely rare and extremely valuable. According to the US Mint: Only 12 of these coins are known to exist - and the quarter ounce and half ounce platinum eagles also have a "Frosted Freedom" variety both with a counts of 21.

The difference between the Normal Proof vs Frosted Freedom Proof is depicted below in the example comparison image of the coins. Note the letters in the word "FREEDOM":
