The first year of availability for the Burnished American Eagle Gold Coin was 2006. As the US Mint celebrated the 20th anniversary of the American Eagle Series, a new collectible version of the coin became an annual issue. The Burnished American Eagle coin was available in 1 oz silver and, initially, four weights of gold. Today, you can get the 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin online from Provident Metals.
When you purchase a 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin in this listing, you receive a specimen with its original packaging. The United States Mint offers the Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins inside of a display box with a Certificate of Authenticity included.
On the obverse face of 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin is the depiction of Liberty. This front-facing relief shows Liberty with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. A ring of 50 stars encircles the design element, with rays of sunshine behind her figure and the US Capitol Building at her feet.
The reverse side of the 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin features a family of American bald eagles. The bald eagle is a species of sea eagle that dominates the skies over the North American continent. In this design, a male eagle soars over the family nest as a female guards a hatchling within the nest.
Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold coins were only available in 2006, 2007, and 2008. The 2006 coin had the highest mintage in the series history for each of the four weights, with the exception of the 2007 1/10 oz gold coin. In fact, with 15,164 coins issued in the 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin release is higher than any of the 1 oz gold coins issued since 2011 when the series returned to production.
All of the 2006-W Burnished American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins come with a W mint mark from the West Point Mint inscribed on the obverse field within the rays of sunshine around Liberty.
