The Gold American Eagle is produced by the US Mint, which is located in Washington, DC. The mint was founded in 1792 and is regarded worldwide for its meticulous craftsmanship. The United Sates Mint produces proof uncirculated and commemorative coins; congressional gold metals; and silver, gold and platinum bullion coins. American Eagle Gold coins are minted at the US Mint in West Point New York.



One of the key advantages of the 1/2oz Gold American Eagle is the gold alloy. The blend of gold, silver and copper give the coin an ideal combination of durability and beauty. The copper content allows for good scratch resistance, while the silver content gives the gold coin a bright and shinny appearance. 

In addition, for those investors who are looking for a well designed coin, the American Eagle offers a detailed and unique motif on the front and back of the coin. The Front features a full length figure of “lady liberty” designed by renaissance artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens. 

The reverse of the coin features an image of a male bald eagle flying over a nest and carrying an olive branch, which was designed by sculptor Miley Busiek.
