Product Description

American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin - Random Year

As the largest fractional size American Gold Eagle coins, the 1/2 oz American Gold Eagles are consistently a top seller due to their price point and the intrinsic gold value. Having a stack of half ounce gold eagles provides all the benefits and security of storing wealth in precious metals.

When buying random year coins it is important to take note that there have been several minor design changes over the life of the series. 

From 1986 through 1991 the US Mint dated the coins using Roman Numerals. From 1992 through the present the more familiar Arabic Numerals are featured.

In 2021, the type 2 reverse was introduced. With the design change occurring mid-year, coins featuring the type 1 design from this year were quickly sold out by the mint and many are in the hands of collectors. Some of these coins may be included in some secondary market inventories.

Like all American Gold Eagle coins, these half ounce coins show a stunningly detailed portrait on the reverse. 

On the type 1 coins, the reverse portrays an eagle flying to his nest on the reverse with a family of eagles eagerly awaiting his return.

Partway through 2021, an updated type 2 reverse design was introduced that portrays just the face of the fierce eagle with piercing eyes.

The reverse of both includes inscriptions United States of America, E Pluribus Unum (from many, one). It also features In God We Trust, weight (one-half oz fine gold) and legal tender value ($25). 

On the front of the coin is a depiction of Lady Liberty inspired by the Augustus Saint-Gaudens $20 gold piece (1907-1933). A throwback reminder to times not long ago when gold coins actually circulated through the economy as real money before the government confiscated and seized gold in 1933.

The 1/2 ounce Gold Eagle coin is 27mm in diameter, and the total weight is 16.96 grams gross.

1/2 oz Gold Eagles allow the opportunity to buy gold coins for around a half the cost of an ounce and are a great choice for stacking.

The coins you receive will be selected based on available dealer inventory.

It's one of the most popular coins out of the fractional American Gold Eagle series. While the half-ounce gold American Eagle contains the full 1/2 troy ounce of gold, the alloy composition of the coin is 91.67% gold (22 karat), 3% silver, and 5.33% copper.

1/2 oz Gold Eagle Coin Highlights:

  • Minted from half troy ounces of .9167 fine gold.
  • The alloy of copper and silver provides a unique hue
  • Coin will be chosen from random year based on available dealer inventory
  • Condition of coins may vary

Random year half ounce gold eagles may be new stock or from the secondary market.
