The 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle was on the only option in the collectible range aside from the 1 oz gold coin to see its mintage rise in 2006. The smaller fractional weights actually fell in 2006 despite the fact that the US Mint was celebrating the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle Series. The 2006 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle is currently available to you for online purchase at Silver.com in perfect condition.

The 2006 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin had one of the skimpiest mintage increases ever seen in the collection. From 2005 to 2006, the 1/2 oz coin’s demand grew by just 11 coins from 34,311 in 2005 to 34,322 in 2006. The 1/4 oz coin might have had a small increase, but it was a better fate than the 1/4 oz or 1/10 oz coins which lose more than 1,000 and 2,000 coins mintage, respectively.
Collectors had a lot of choices when looking to buy gold and American Eagle coins from the United States Mint. The Proof Gold Eagle coins were available individually and in the typical 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set. Additionally, the US Mint issued two different 20th-anniversary sets. In one set, the Gold Eagle, Proof Gold Eagle, and new Burnished Gold Eagle were all offered in their 1 oz varieties. In the other set, the 2006 Gold Eagle and 2006 Silver Eagle were offered. Both of these sets sold out quickly.
On the obverse of 2006 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin is the image of Lady Liberty created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. The reverse face of 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle Coins features the design of American bald eagles created in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
