2016 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin
The 2016 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle Bullion Coin from the United States Mint contains one-half of a troy ounce of pure gold, which by law, is taken from newly mined sources in the United States. The balance of the coin’s composition consists of silver and copper, added to increase the coin’s durability and to help resist scratching and marring. American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins are minted according to the durable, 22-karat standard for circulating gold coinage. American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins are rich in history, too. The obverse is based on world-renowned American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design for the prized 1907 $20 gold coin. The reverse pictures a family of eagles, symbolizing family tradition and unity.
American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins are one of the United States’ only official investment grade gold bullion coins. Their weight, content and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government and are eligible for inclusion in a Precious Metals Individual Retirement Account (IRA). 1/2 oz American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins, with their unique U.S. government backing, may be sold for cash at many coin and precious metals dealers worldwide. They are also technically legal tender, although their face value of $25 is merely symbolic, because gold’s market price has historically been higher.

The obverse design on the American Gold Eagle bullion coin features a rendition of Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ full length figure of Lady Liberty with flowing hair, holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, with the Capitol building in the background. This design is taken from the Pre-1933 $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin which was commissioned by Theodore Roosevelt to create coins like ancient Greek and Roman coins. The reverse design of the American Gold Eagle coin, by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her hatchlings.
