American Eagle Gold Coins are produced by the United States Mint with one of the nations most iconic images of Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty featured on the Pre-1933 circulating $20 Gold Double Eagle. It now features on the American Eagle Gold bullion, proof, and burnished coins. Right now, you can get the Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin from random years online at Provident Metals.
Proof American Eagle Gold Coins were released for the first time in 1986 by the United States Mint, but unlike the bullion version there was just a 1 oz coin available. The 1/2 oz Gold Eagle debuted in proof in 1987, followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz Gold Eagles in 1988. The only year since those dates that Proof American Eagle Gold Coins have not been struck was 2009 when the US Mint suspended all proof coinage to meet bullion demands.
The obverse of the Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins features the front-facing effigy of Lady Liberty. This free-flowing depiction shows Liberty striding forward with a large torch held above in her right hand and a giant olive branch in her left hand. The national capital is visible in the background at her feet. Her figure is encircled by 50 stars representing the US states.
On the reverse side, Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins bear a unique design from Miley Busiek. This design is found only on the American Eagle Gold Coins and depicts a male eagle flying over the nest as a female eagle is perched within guarding over a hatchling.
Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins set a mintage high in 1987, the debut year for this weight in the series. The mintage that year was 143,398. By comparison, more recent date marks have significantly lower mintages such as 15,820 coins in 2015. American Eagle Gold Coins struck between 1986 and 1991 have Roman numerals for date marks, while all coins from 1992 onward have Arabic numerals for date marks.
