        Comments about 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle (Random Year):

        I have been telling friends to stack up on these. Set aside $200 a week. If you can afford it buy just 1 per month. After a year I had 6oz of gold sitting around. Great way to protect your savings, since we all the know the dollar is going to melt in the near future.
        And also remember, a 1/2oz gold eagle is much easier to sell or trade vs. a 1oz eagle if we see gold hit 3-4K an ounce.
        Who cares if they have a nick or smudge. Pretty soon, people won't care if you ran it over with a truck, because gold is going to be that hard to get!!!

              great looking, well recognized coin. although...i wish they make them with 99.99% gold coin rather than 91.67%(22karat) gold coin. Not a big deal but i like the word "pure". :)

                I purchase precious medals for wealth preservation.. I stay with the smaller denominations to make it easier to buy and/or sell.

                I have been purchasing products from APMEX since 2008 and the service has always been exceptional. I have only had one problem in all those years and it was corrected immediately.

                      Comments about 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle (Random Year):

                      I bought this coin because of the majestic design and it's value. The random year coin I got was from 2009. At first glance it looks great and it seems to be in uncirculated condition. However, the coin I recieved had a ding to right side of Lady Liberty. It is a very small mark but I feel it takes away from the overall look of the coin. I thought about returning it but the grace period has since passed so I will keep it. Shipping was quick as usual.

                              I bought gold, because it is primarily a placeholder for money in this crazy economy. Gold always has value, so why not turn paper into substantial currancy? It always seems to have a good turnover. It is a long term investment. Mostly it is simply security.
                              I don't think there are any bad qualities for gold. I definitely recomend buying. Apmex is a great company.

                              I was impressed with the speed of delivery. I was expecting for it to take 3 or more days, but it arrived a day and a half later. I have purchased both gold and silver, and I am always content with the condition they arive in.

                                      The 1/2 Oz Gold American Eagles are a great addition to anyones precious metals stack at an affordable price. If buying gold on a strict budget, consider investing in these fractional gold eagles. I like these half ounce coins because they are a good size, have the luster of the larger 1 oz coins, and at a good price/ generally low premium.

                                      Service and delivery comments:

                                      I would definatley recommend Apmex becuase of the overall value and the great selection of inventory. the shipping speed was terrific! Will certainly do business again.
