The 1/2 oz Gold Eagle is the lowest-minted coin in the Gold American Eagle Series. Its debut release in 1986 remains the highest minted with a total issue of 599,566 coins. The closest the mintage has ever come since then to that record mark was the 1999 release that achieved a mark less than half of the record.
On the obverse side of 2021 1/2 oz Gold American Eagles is the figure of Lady Liberty. Shown in front-facing relief, she walks away from Washington DC with rays of sunshine at her back as she holds up a torch to light her way and carries an olive branch in her left hand. The US Capitol Building is present in the design at her feet, with a ring of 50 stars encircling the entire design element.
The reverse face of the 2021 Gold American Eagle comes with an image of a bald eagle family. The design depicts a male eagle swooping over the family nest as a female eagle within the nest guards a young hatchling. This design was created exclusively for the Gold Eagles in 1986 by Miley Busiek and makes its final appearance in the series in early 2021.
