Available since 1987, the Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin has had several ebbs and flows in demand and mintage. The 2005 coin sold a total of 34,311, the fourth-highest mintage of this weight in the 2000s and the highest the weight had seen since 1996. Provident Metals now offers 2005-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins for purchase online in perfect condition.
When you purchase the 2005-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin through this listing, you receive an item in perfect condition. The coins have PF70 certifications that indicate each one has full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas. Ultra-cameo coins have strong, frosted design elements overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields for brilliant contrast between the two elements of the coin.
The obverse side of 2005-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins comes with the vision of Liberty that was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Lady Liberty is featured in front-facing relief with a large torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. There is a circle of 50 stars around her figure and the US Capitol Building is visible at her feet in the background.
On the reverse face of 2005 Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins is a depiction of a family of American bald eagles. In this design, the male eagle is shown flying over the family nest as the female eagle guards over the hatchling in the nest. This imagery was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek and features exclusively on the reverse of American Eagle Gold Coins.
From 2005 to 2010, the Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin largely increased in mintage with two exceptions. 2008 coins sunk to 22,000 on rising demand for bullion versions of the coin and the 2009 coin was suspended altogether as the bullion coins were the only coins available.
2005-W Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins are housed inside of protective plastic slabs to ensure the coins remain in perfect condition.
