American Gold Eagle coins were first introduced in 1986 by the United States Mint, but it wasn’t until 1987 that the 1/2 oz denomination was issued by the Philadelphia Mint. The “P” mintmark featured on the coin indicates that it originates from the Philadelphia Mint. Since then, this coin has been released in the 1/2 oz denomination; however, in 1993, the production of the ½ oz American Gold Eagle shifted over to the West Point Mint.
The obverse of the 1987-P 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows the image of Lady Liberty.

In the image, Lady Liberty is seen walking forward toward the viewer with rays of sun extending out in the background. In one hand, she holds an olive branch, while the other holds a torch.
The reverse design of the 1987-P 1/2 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin features the family eagle image created by Miley Busiek.

This side of the coin also shows the coin’s weight, purity, and value, along with its country of origin.
