1/2 oz gold US Mint Commemorative Arts Medal (Random)

The U.S. Mint's Commemorative Arts Gold Medal program was a special program that ran between 1980 and 1984 that was created to honor notable American artists and their contributions to the arts and culture of the United States.

These medals were not legal tender coins, but rather collectible medals made of .900 fine gold, each containing 1/2 troy ounce. Many of these were commemorative issues that were commercial flops with collectors that are now part of the bullion market.

For these 1/2 oz gold medals, the obverse featured a portrait of the honoree, while the reverse provided an emblematic representation or scene related to the individual's contributions or works.

These have become popular method for stacking gold weight with low premium as collector demand has disappeared off over the years. While the designs varied depending on the honoree, the gold specifications for the medals in the program were consistent. 

  • Composition: 90% Gold, 10% Alloy (consistent with the composition used in other U.S. gold coinage)
  • Weight: Approximately 1/2 troy oz (around 15.55 grams)
  • Edge: Reeded

These specifications ensured the medals had maintain their tangible value due to the gold content. These 1/2 oz gold rounds provide a consistent size and format to make them easily recognizable as produced by the US Mint.

Each medal in the Commemorative Arts Gold Medal program was made of 90% gold and 10% alloy or .900 fineness, a common alloy used for circulating gold coins issued by the Mint prior to 1933.
