The Gold American Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. Congress authorized the production of the coins following passage of the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985. Under the terms of the act, all coins produced for each series must use gold sourced from within the United States. Augustus Saint-Gaudens crafted the image for the obverse side of the coin, while sculptor Miley Busiek created the image on the reverse.
On the obverse side of the 2015 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle coin is Saint-Gaudens’ image of Lady Liberty. On the coin, she is depicted walking toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Engravings include “Liberty,” the year of minting, and a star representing each state in the US around the rim of the coin.
The reverse side of the coin focuses on a male eagle returning to the family next. Clutching an olive branch in its talons, the eagle arrives at the nest as a female stands guard over the hatchlings and eggs. Engravings on this side of the coin include “United States of America,” and “1 oz. Fine Gold ~ 50 Dollars” which appear in large lettering above and below the image respectively. The image of the eagles is flanked by engravings in smaller text which show “In God We Trust” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
The United States Mint was established in 1792 as the official minting facility of the federal government. These 2015 1/2 oz Gold American Eagles have a grade of MS70 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. An MS70 grade means a coin has perfect minting, with no abrasions and a brilliant strike.
