1/2 oz American Eagle Gold Coin | 2023
Stonex Bullion and the US Mint are pleased to present this beautiful 1/2 oz gold coin 2023, the largest fractional-ounce coin in the American Gold Eagle Series.
The 2023 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Bullion Coin from the United States Mint contains 1/2 troy ounce of pure gold, which by law, is taken from newly mined sources in the United States. The balance of the coin’s composition consists of silver and copper, added to increase the coin’s durability and to help resist scratching and marring.
The series was introduced in 1986 by the amazing US Mint and was an instant hit. This is why:
In 2021, for the first time since their introduction more than three decades before, the reverse of American Eagle Gold Proof Coins debuted a newly designed portrayal of an eagle, created by United States Mint Artistic Infusion Program Designer Jennie Norris and sculpted by United States Mint Medallic Artist Renata Gordon.
This depiction of the Eagle captures its beauty and force with a particular attention to details: the individual feathers on its head are clearly visible, and the beak used to capture the prey is along with the powerful hook in its beak that it uses to capture its prey.
Inscriptions are “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST,” along with the face value and weight.
The coins’ obverse features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. To render a closer reflection of Saint-Gaudens’ original vision, legacy details of the obverse design also were restored in 2021, including modifications to the U.S. Capitol Building, stars, torch, sun rays, and other design elements based on the original bronze cast.
American Gold Eagle bullion coins have been rising in popularity in recent years. Demand for gold has increased as a result of the recent COVID-19 pandemic that started in 2020 and the economic fallout from the shockwaves it sent through global markets over the course of more than two years. The 1/2 oz gold coin is a popular choice among investors as an affordable alternative to the 1 oz coin when gold prices rise.
Each of the 2023 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coins comes with individual or bulk packaging options. Individual coins will ship inside a protective flip so are sure to arrive in your household in perfect condition.
