The 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin was the first of three fractional-weight options introduced into the series. It debuted alone in 1987 and garnered the fourth-highest mintage figure in the program’s history with its debut issue of 143,398 coins. Despite its early success, the 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle is, today, the lowest minted of the four coins in the collection.
All 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagles were originally produced by the Philadelphia Mint, with 1987-1993 date marked coins bearing the “P” mint mark. From 1994 to the present, 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagles feature the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint instead.
On the obverse of Proof Gold American Eagle coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of Lady Liberty. It depicts Liberty in front-facing relief and showcases her as she holds a large torch overhead in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. The reverse of 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagles features a family of American bald eagles. The male is shown flying over the nest while the female guards a hatchling within the nest.
