Proof Gold American Eagle coins are struck on an annual basis by the United States Mint based upon demand for the coins. No strict limit is set on mintage of the coins, which results in drastic fluctuations over time. Different weights and versions of the coin have experienced different spikes in popularity.
When the Gold American Eagle was first introduced, popularity created immense demand. Some of the weights however, such as the ½ oz Proof Gold American Eagle, are tough to find today because popularity for that particular product was low at the time. The coins in this product listing are among the hardest to find now because they were struck in such low numbers originally.
Each of the 1989-P ½ oz Proof Gold American Eagles in this listing has a perfect proof grade of PF70 from the NGC. Each has its full, original luster and no blemishes. Coins with an ultra-cameo finish feature frosted design sets that appear to float above a background field that is deeply-mirrored and clear.
On the obverse face of each coin is a depiction of Lady Liberty created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This image originally appeared on the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933.
The reverse features Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of nesting bald eagles. Her design was created in 1986 and is used exclusively on Gold American Eagle coins.
