The United States Mint’s 1/2 oz Gold Eagle bullion coin is one of four options available to investors. This coin is the largest of the fractional-ounce products in the series, but is also the lowest minted in the series. The highest mintage ever achieved by the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle was 599,566 in its debut issue in 1986.
Since that time, the 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle has failed to reach even half the mintage of its all-time high. Within six years of its 1986 release, the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle had fallen all the way to 24,100 coins. This was the record low in the collection until 2019 when a new low of just 19,000 coins were struck and sold.
On the obverse of 2020 1/2 oz Gold American Eagles is a depiction of Lady Liberty in front-facing relief. Designed in 1907, this image featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle circulating coin until 1933.
The reverse face of 2020 Gold American Eagles comes with the design of American bald eagles. Designed by Miley Busiek specifically for this series, the imagery includes a male eagle in flight over the nest in which a female is offering shelter to a young hatchling under her wing.
These 2020 1/2 oz Gold American Eagles have a near-perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins in Mint State 69 condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines found outside the primary focal areas. First Strike labels indicate the coins were received within the original 30-day window following the US Mint’s release of 2020 Gold Eagles.
