Among the four Proof Gold Eagles released in 2002, the 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin had the lowest mintage figure in the group. The demand for the 1/2 oz coin was more than 14,000 coins lower than the leading 1/10 oz coin and only 853 coins below the 1 oz option in the series. The US Mint established maximum mintage figures for all four individual coins and the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set, but none achieved a sellout.

The obverse face of the 2002 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle coin includes the vision of Liberty created back in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. His design was a departure from the traditional Greek and Roman-inspired depictions of Liberty, and it captured her as a strong and confident symbol of the United States as it marched toward a brighter future.
On the reverse of 2002 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins is the image of bald eagles. This design is exclusive to the Gold American Eagle coinage and was created in 1986 for the series by artist and sculptor Miley Busiek.
