The largest fractional-ounce coin in the Proof American Eagle Gold Series is the 1/2 oz gold coin. This weight was the first of the three fractional-ounce coins introduced in the series and debuted in 1987. The 1/2 oz gold coin is often the lowest minted in the group of four weights. Today, you have the chance to purchase Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins with NGC certification from random years at Provident Metals.
Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins were introduced by the US Mint in 1987. This came one year after the 1 oz gold coin debuted in 1986, and one year before the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz gold coins were released to complete the proof collection. The fractional-ounce coins were produced by the Philadelphia Mint with P mint marks from 1987/1988 to 1993 and by the West Point Mint with W mint marks from 1994 onward.
The obverse of all Proof American Eagle Gold Coins includes the vision of Lady Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks away from the national capital. In this design, Liberty moves toward the viewer with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand while the US Capitol Building is depicted at her feet. It was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle until 1933.
On the reverse face of Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins is a family of American bald eagles. Designed by Miley Busiek exclusively for this series in 1986, it depicts a family of eagles with the male flying over the nest as a female guards a hatchling in the nest.
Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins vary in mintage from one year to the next and are issued to meet demand from collectors, though some earlier years had mintage caps in place. The two highest minted dates in the Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold collection are 1987 and 1988, with the lowest minted date being 2013.
These Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins have PF69 certifications that indicate full, original mint luster is present along with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are outside the primary focal points and include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines. UCAM coins have strong, frosted elements with deeply-mirrored, clear fields. This is a random year listing. We cannot guarantee the date mark you receive or select varying date marks for you if you purchase multiples.
