Launched back in 1986, The American Eagle Coin program is the prominent coin program of the United States Mint. At the time of the initial launch, the mint only produced a few gold weights, including these 1/2 oz options. However, other fractional gold weights were eventually added to the lineup in subsequent years.

These days, American Eagle Coins come in many different varieties. Gold versions include 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. The mint also provides different finish options, including bullion, uncirculated, and proof. The mint also provides silver, platinum, and palladium options for consumers. You will see different designs on each different metal type, making each Eagle stand out.

On the obverse, Lady Liberty is striding forward, seemingly off the face of the coin entirely. In the image, the sun hits her back, and she carries both an olive branch and a fiery torch. This design was originally created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It was created for use on the Gold Double Eagle Coins of that time.

Sculptor Miley Busiek designed the imagery for the reverse of these coins in 1986. The design was specifically created for these coins, and it features the image of a large male bald eagle returning to his family nest with an olive branch clutched between his talons. In his nest, there sits a female and hatchling waiting for the male’s return.

These coins will arrive at your door in plastic flips. The flips are meant to protect your coins during the shipping process, as well as when they are stored. Each coin contains 91.67% gold by weight, making them exactly 1/2 Troy ounce of pure 22-karat gold. The rest of the coin is made up of copper and silver, adding to the coins’ durability.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

How can I contact you?

Please feel welcome to call us toll free at 1(888) 989-7223 or use our Live Chat feature during normal business hours Monday through Friday, 08:00 a.m. to 06:00 p.m. CST. Alternatively, you can email us at help@silver.com and expect a response within 1 business day.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
