Details of the 1/2 Ounce American Gold Eagle
In order to increase the durability and the hardness of the half-ounce Gold Eagle, Crown Gold, a 22 karat gold and copper alloy, is used to produce all Gold Eagles. The overall weight of each of the 1/2 oz Gold Eagles is increased, however, so each coin still does precisely contain 1/2 ounce of gold. The 1/2 Ounce Gold Eagle is legal tender within the United States and carries a nominal face value of 25 dollars.
The design of the 1/2 Ounce American Gold Eagle repeats the beautiful walking Lady Liberty design, famous for its appearance on US circulation gold coinage in the early 20th century. The obverse of each Gold Eagle also shows the mint year. The reverse has a large heraldic eagle grabbing an olive branch, as well as the purity, face value and weight of the coin. 1/2 oz Gold Eagles of all mint years share the same design.
