There is no symbol of American might and power that is greater than the bald eagle. The eagle was officially adopted as a national emblem of the United States in the 1792. At the time, the eagle was chosen as the national emblem because of its power, majesty, and longevity. Today, the bald eagle is featured on countless symbols in the US, from the Seal of the President of the United States to various official coins produced by the US Mint. Today the Gold American Eagle is the official gold bullion coin of the United States.
The Gold American Eagle coin was first authorized under the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. Much like the Silver Bullion Act of the same year, this deal authorized the release of gold from the treasury for production as circulation currency in the United States. Under the official act, the coin was minted in 1/10, 1/4, 1/2 and 1 oz weights and today is still only minted in these sizes.
All Gold American Eagle coins are guaranteed to contain 22 karat gold and the actual weight in troy ounces is backed by the full faith of the US government. Under the terms of the act, all the gold used in the production of these coins must come from sources in the United States. Each Gold American Eagle also has small amounts of silver and copper included in the minting process to create a more wear-resistant coin that can withstand use in currency.
The 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ image of Lady Liberty on the obverse side of the coin. Lady Liberty can be seen walking toward the viewer with a torch for guidance in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The setting sun is featured behind Lady Liberty. Engravings surrounding her image include 50 stars, one for each US state, the word “LIBERTY,” and the year of minting.
On the reverse side of the coin, the image of an eagle landing in its nest is featured. The phrases “E Pluribus Unum” and “In God We Trust” are engraved on either side of the image. Above the eagle’s head is the phrase “United States of America,” while the weight, metal content, purity, and face value of the coin are engraved below.
