Product Description

Discover the 1986 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin at BGASC! According to the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985, the American Gold Eagle earned its official gold bullion coin status in the US. These coins, available in four different weights, are guaranteed by the US government to contain the specified amount of actual gold weight in troy ounces, all sourced within the US. At BGASC, we’re excited to offer the 1986 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin for your collection.


  • Securely shipped in a protective plastic flip!
  • Commemorating the inaugural year of the American Gold Eagle coin series!
  • Contains 1/2 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Boasts a face value of $25 (USD), fully backed by the US government.
  • The reverse features a captivating family of eagles, while Lady Liberty graces the obverse.

Each 1986 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin available in this listing comes to you with a protective plastic flip. These coins bear the original date mark in the series and feature Roman numerals, rather than Arabic numerals, for the date.


Turn to the obverse, and you’ll encounter the full-length figure of Lady Liberty walking towards you, her hair flowing, and a torch in her outstretched right hand. In her left hand, she holds an olive branch, with the Capitol building depicted to the left of her right foot.


On the reverse of the 1986 American Gold Eagle coin, witness a male eagle returning to the family nest with an olive branch. A female eagle guards eaglets in the nest, symbolizing the importance of family in America. This design, sculpted by Sherl J. Winter from Miley Busiek’s creation, includes thoughtful inscriptions.


In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt envisioned a more artistically vibrant design for the nation’s coinage. Augustus Saint-Gaudens, answering the call, crafted the Lady Liberty designs, later repurposed for the American Gold Eagle coins. In 1986, the gold price began at $326.30 per ounce, spiked at $438.00 in September (just before the Gold Eagle release), and closed the year at $396.13 per ouncea 19% increase from 1985.
