Whether you're looking for a gold coin with a great artistic design or are trying to find a cost-effective way to purchase gold bullion, the 2017 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle - Brilliant Uncirculated is a very popular option. These coins are struck from .917 fine (22-karat) gold and are given a legal tender denomination of 25 Dollars. Each coin contains one-half troy ounce (0.5 troy oz) of fine gold content.
The coin is best recognized by its iconic obverse design. Created by legendary 19th-century artist August Saint-Gaudens, the design shows Lady Liberty confidently striding forward, an olive branch in one hand and a burning torch held in the other hand in front of her. "LIBERTY" runs along the top rim, surrounded by a border of fifty stars. The year-date "2017" is placed to the right of Lady Liberty. Sunbeams fill the background, while the Capitol building is visible in the bottom-left of the design.
On the reverse, a family of bald eagles is depicted. In fantastic detail, a father eagle is shown landing at the family nest with an olive branch. The mother eagle protects her two eaglets with her wings. The weight and denomination are found at the bottom rim, reading "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD~25 DOLLARS." The issuing nation "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" appears at the top rim, while the mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are found to the left and right of the eagles, respectively.
