American coinage has always been popular around the world. The United States Mint is known for producing unique designs that are beloved. Every year, the mint releases American Eagle Gold Coins in various fractional weights, including 1/2 oz. Right now, you can purchase the 1991 American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin directly from Provident Metals!
Each coin contains 91.67% gold by weight, which means that each coin is composed of exactly 1/2 Troy ounce of pure 22-karat gold. Silver and copper are added to provide extra strength and durability.
The obverse design showcases Lady Liberty as designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. The design was originally created for the Gold Double Eagle Coins that were released the same year. In his depiction of Lady Liberty, she is walking away from the Capitol in Washington D.C. with the sun gleaming off of her shoulders and back. In one hand, she carries an olive branch. In the other, you will see a large flaming torch.
The reverse image is Miley Busieks bald eagle family design. This design was made just for these coins in 1986. In the image, a large male eagle returns to his family nest. He has an olive branch in his talons. A female and hatchling are waiting for him to return in the nest.
The United States Mint launched the American Eagle Coin program in 1986. At that time, there was a more limited selection than we are used to today. Now, you can buy four different weights of American Eagle Gold Coins: 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. The mint also offers three different options for finishes: bullion, proof, and uncirculated, although the uncirculated, also called burnished, arent always struck by the mint.
The mint has also created American Eagles in three additional metal types: silver, platinum, and palladium. These metal types will feature a unique design with the same Americana-focused themes.
