Silver.com is proud to offer the 2012 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Coins. With your purchase, you can get your own piece of American nostalgia today. Each coin contains 22-karat gold as well as small amounts of alloy. The alloy allows the coins to be harder and more scratch-resistant.
On the obverse face of each coin, you will find the image of Lady Liberty as she strides away from the Capitol building. With the sun shining on her back, she holds an olive branch in her left hand and a flaming torch in her right. Originally created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this design was made for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coins that were produced from 1907 to 1933. The inscriptions on this side of the coin include the year of mint “2012” and “Liberty.”
The reverse design features a beautiful bald eagle family. The design was created in 1986 by sculptor Miley Busiek specifically for these coins. In the image, a male bald eagle returns to the nest with an olive branch clutched in his talons. He lands to meet a female and their hatchlings resting in the nest.
