Authorized under the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the American Gold Eagle quickly became one of the worlds leaders in gold bullion coin. By law, it is required to be made from gold mined in the US. It is guaranteed by the US government to contain the specified amount of actual gold, in troy ounces. The gold fraction in these coins is .9167, or 22 karats. The mintage count for the 2007 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle coins was 47,002, the lowest mintage number for these specific coins in over 10 years. However, 2007 saw the greatest increase in the price of gold over that same 10 year period. Right now, Provident Metals has a 2007 1/2 oz American Eagle Gold Coin available for purchase.
Throughout time, the price of gold has always fluctuated. It has experienced several years in a row of increases only to be followed by one or more years of decreases. However, overall, the price of gold has been on an upward trend.
During the period 2001-2012, the price of gold moved higher each year. Some years, like 2001, saw small increases in the price of gold, up only 1.41% for the year. Other years, like 2002, 2003, 2006, 2009, and 2010, saw significant increases in the price of gold, up over 22% each of those years. However, 2007 saw the largest increase in the price of gold, up an astonishing 31.59% over 2006! You have to go back to 1979 to find an increase greater than that.
The version of Lady Liberty created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens is portrayed on the obverse of this 2007 American Eagle Gold coin. This design depicts a full length figure of Lady Liberty, who appears to be walking right to you. Her hair is flowing in the breeze. She has a torch in her outstretched right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. There is a small depiction of the Capitol building to the left of her right foot. It includes the inscriptions LIBERTY and 2007.
The design depicting the importance of family in America, created by Miley Busiek and sculpted by Sherl J. Winter, is on the reverse of this 2007 American Eagle Gold coin. It features a male eagle, carrying an olive branch in its claws, flying towards its family in a nest. It includes the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, IN GOD WE TRUST, 1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD, and 25 DOLLARS.
President Theodore Roosevelt had become disenfranchised with the condition of US coinage. In 1904, he inquired into the possibility of retaining the talents of Augustus Saint-Gaudens to create a new design that would return the US coins to a condition of beauty. Saint-Gaudens accepted the Presidents invitation, and it is a version of Saint-Gaudens Liberty design that now appears on the American Eagle Gold coin.
