Historically speaking, the ½ oz American Gold Eagle coin has had one of the lowest mintage figures in the bullion release. Since the 1986 introduction of the Gold Eagle Series, the ½ oz and ¼ oz coins have gone back and forth as the coin with the lowest mintage and demand. Today, 2018 ½ oz American Gold Eagle Coins are available to you online from JM Bullion.

Coin Highlights:

  • Arrives in an individual plastic flip or mint tubes of 40 coins!
  • 33rd year of issue for American Gold Eagle coins!
  • Contains ½ Troy oz of actual gold content in BU condition.
  • Face value of $25 (USD) is fully backed by the US government.
  • Obverse includes Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ iconic image of Liberty.
  • Reverse depicts a family of bald eagles created by Miley Busiek.

The highest ever mintage figure for the ½ oz Gold Eagle came during its inaugural release in 1986 when a total of 599,566 coins in this weight were sold by the US Mint. The demand dropped sharply the following year to just 131,255 coins. In the years to come, the ½ oz gold bullion coin would only cross the 100,000 coin threshold in mintage three times.

American Gold Eagle ½ oz coins wouldn’t cross 100,000 again until 1998 when 169,029 coins were produced. The second highest all-time mintage figure for the ½ coins came in 1999 when 263,013 were struck. The third time the coins would cross 100,000 came in 2009 in the midst of the Great Recession when 110,000 coins were struck and sold.

All 2018 ½ oz American Gold Eagle coins listed here are in BU condition. Coins in BU condition have no signs of wear and tear, but there is the potential for production flaws as part of the process at the mint. These flaws range from breaks in the luster and spotted surfaces to contact marks.

The obverse of all American Gold Eagle Coins includes the iconic image of Liberty as she strides forth from the nation’s capital. Visible at her feet is the US Capitol Building, and her free figure wears no crown and has hair that flows with the wind. She holds her torch high in her right hand with an olive branch of peace in her left.

On the reverse of 2018 ½ oz American Gold Eagle Coins you’ll find Miley Busiek’s contribution to the series. A talented artist with numerous public and private works in her portfolio, Busiek created this image of a family of bald eagles in their nest exclusively for the American Gold Eagle series in 1986.
