The history of the 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle coin

The 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle coin was authorized by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, which also created a 1/10 oz, 1/4 oz and 1 oz American Eagle coin. American Eagle Gold coins were an instant hit, partly because their design was based on the celebrated Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle design of 1907. One of many Lady Liberty Gold coins produced by the U.S. Mint, the modern Gold Eagle is primarily produced for investment potential. Gold coins have long carried the symbols of American ideals, and the American eagle is one of the most popular designs.

Why invest in 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle coins?

The 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle offers an economical and attainable way to begin adding Gold to your investment portfolio. American Eagle Gold coins from the U.S. Mint are made with Gold mined in the United States with a small amount of alloy to add hardness that resists scratching and marring. One of many Lady Liberty Gold coins minted in the U.S., modern Eagle Gold coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government for weight, content and purity. Gold coins are an internationally recognized financial asset and an asset ideal for diversifying your investments.

The American Gold Eagle is the choice of careful investors, who consider it an investment that can hold value.

A 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle is a bullion coin, specifically created by the U.S. Mint for people who want to buy Gold and an investment. American Eagle Gold coins are legal tender, which means the Gold coins are guaranteed by the U.S. government for weight and Gold content. Other coins, like a Liberty Gold coin or other vintage Gold coins, often costs more per troy ounce of Gold, which means they are not ultimately the best for investors. Gold coins like the American Eagle are also different from Gold rounds, which look like coins but have no legal tender value and are often created by private mints.
