PCGS Certified 1/2 oz Gold Eagles
The American Eagle Gold series debuted in 1986 and every year the series has seen widespread popularity. This category is limited to 1/2 oz Gold Eagles that feature more than just a beautiful, patriotic design: all have been certified by PCGS, one of the top two coin grading services. This ensures that you will receive your purchased coin in the condition you select as it will be delivered in a protective encapsulation.
The obverse of the Gold Eagle is adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famed Gold Double Eagle design of 1907, often regarded as the most beautiful design in American coinage. The design features Lady Liberty walking confidently against the sun’s rays, carrying a torch and an olive branch. The reverse of the Gold Eagle is equally beautiful, showing a male bald eagle in flight carrying an olive branch to his nest, where a female awaits with her young. This design highlights the strength and importance of American families.
Purchasing PCGS certified coins guarantees the condition of the coin. Shop for the quality you want by the PCGS rating which uses Sheldon Grading Scale from 1 (barely identifiable) to 70 (absolute perfection). Each Gold Eagle in this category contains 1/2 oz Gold.
