The American Gold Eagle is the official bullion coin of the United States, first released by the United States Mint in 1986. President Roosevelt was the first president to order the production of the bullion coin, and it has remained a significant product of the bullion market ever since. Each coin is guaranteed by the US government to contain the stated weight of actual gold in troy ounces, and the fineness of the gold is superior to previous US gold coins. With a minimum gold content of .9167, and an alloy of silver and copper that gives a more wear-resistant surface, the Gold Eagle is certainly a worthy gold investment. The obverse side features Lady Liberty, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, surrounded by a circle of 50 stars that represent the 50 states. The reverse side depicts a male eagle bringing an olive branch to a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings. Traditionally designed and highly collectable, this American Gold Eagle 1/2oz coin is an essential acquisition for all bullion coin collectors.
