The 2016 Gold American Centennial Series is a three-coin release that offers three different weights, with each coin featuring 24-karat pure gold. These coins are just the third-ever release of .9999 fine gold coins from the United States Mint.
Each coin in the Gold Centennial Series has a weight and face value representative of the original coin it commemorates. The Mercury Dime coin features 1/10 troy ounce and a $.10 (USD) face value, while the Standing Liberty Quarter coin has ¼ troy ounce and a face value of $.25 (USD).
These 2016 ½ oz Gold American Walking Liberty Half Dollar Coins have one-half troy ounce of 24-karat gold and a face value of $.50 (USD). Each one earned an MS69 grade from the PCGS. Considered a near-perfect specimen, these coins have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws.
In order for these coins to earn the First Strike designation they needed to arrive at the PCGS for grading within the first 30 days of the release date set by the United States Mint.
On the obverse you’ll find the iconic Walking Liberty design from Adolph A. Weinman. The reverse of the 2016 ½ oz Gold American Walking Liberty Half Dollar Coin bears the original American bald eagle design from the 1916 coin. It depicts the bald eagle at rest on its perch on the side of a cliff.
