Product Details

The premier Gold Bullion coin of the United States, the Gold American Eagle has become one of the most popular Gold coins on the market since its debut in 1986.

The design of American Gold Eagles is instantly recognizable among collectors and investors across the world. The obverse of the Gold Eagle was originally designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 Double Eagle Gold coin in the very early 1900s. It features Lady Liberty in front of the Capitol building holding in her right hand a fiery torch and an olive branch in her left. Her hair is flowing back behind her in the wind signifying forward movement against a background of sun rays.

The reverse of the coin features a nest of American eagles with a female and her young being circled by a male, signifying strength and security.

The 1/2 oz Brilliant Uncirculated Gold Eagle is always in high demand because fractional Gold Eagles make for an easy way to own the beautiful Gold American Eagle design at a lower price point than their full ounce counterparts.

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

          And I'm glad that I did. I set a goal to acquire 10oz of each denomination of gold bullion eagles. That means 20 of these beautiful coins. These coins are of the random date BU class, but they appeared to be mint condition. I couldn't find a single scratch, and now that they are protected in air-tites, they will never scratch up.

                    Comments about 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle BU (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!!!

                              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.
