Gold American Eagle coins are dominated in sales by the 1 oz gold and 1/10 oz coins. These two coins combine in the bullion series for the six highest mintage figures in the program’s history. Additionally, these are the only two weights in the collection to surpass 1 million coins in any given production year.
The 1/2 oz Gold Eagle is, traditionally, among the lowest mintages in the collection. Most years see the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle and 1/4 oz Gold Eagle come in with the lowest mintage figures. In fact, the highest mintage in the 1/2 oz weight in this series was set all the way back in its debut release of 1986 when 599,566 coins were struck. The closest it has come since that time was 1999 when just over 263,000 coins were issued.
On the obverse of all 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This design originally appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933. The reverse side features the family of American bald eagles created in 1986 by Miley Busiek exclusively for use on the Gold Eagles.
All of these 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Coins are available in Mint State 69 condition from the PCGS or NGC. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Silver.com offers these coins from random years with varied labels.
