The American Gold Eagle has three fractional-ounce coins, the only bullion coin from the US Mint to offer more than just a 1 oz coin. The 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle is the largest of the coins alongside the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins. Historically speaking, the 1/2 oz Gold Eagle has the lowest mintage figures in the series.
Like the 1/4 oz gold coin in the series, the 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle has never surpassed its 1986 debut mintage. 599,566 coins were sold in the 1/2 oz weight in 1986, but the closest the series has come since that time to reaching that mark was 1999 when a total of 263,013 coins were produced during the Y2K demand period.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of Lady Liberty is used on the obverse of all American Gold Eagle coins. The image of Liberty featured here is a front-facing portrait that depicts Liberty with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. Around her figure is a circle of 50 stars.
Miley Busiek created the image of American bald eagles on the reverse of 2020 American Gold Eagles. This design includes a female eagle and young hatchling in the nest, with a male eagle soaring above the nest.
These 2020 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available today in near-perfect condition. The coins earned a Mint State 69 certification that indicates full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws present. Acceptable flaws at this level include minuscule contact marks or hairlines only.
Early Release labels in the slab indicate that each coin arrived with the NGC or an approved third-party depository inside of the initial 30-day window of release from the United States Mint.
