There is perhaps no more trusted and easily recognized gold bullion coin anywhere in the world than the U.S. Mint's American Gold Eagle. With a classic pair of designs and durable .917 fine (22-karat) gold content, these coins are preferred by investors and bullion traders the world over thanks to their reliability and immediately recognizable appearance. The 2018 1/2 oz Gold Eagle contains a total of one-half troy ounce (0.5 troy oz) of pure gold and is designated with a legal tender face value of $25.
An enhanced rendition of the classic Augustus Saint-Gaudens design of Lady Liberty graces the obverse. Carrying a torch that lights the way in front of her, Miss Liberty holds an olive branch in her other outstretched arm. She stands on top of a hill where the U.S. Capitol Building can be seen far below in the distance. Brilliant sunbeams radiate from behind her.
The reverse design shows Miley Busiek's symbolic imagining of a bald eagle family. The father eagle returns to his nesting mate and their two eaglets carrying an olive branch, the traditional symbol of peace, in his talons. The national mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" flank the eagles. The issuing country "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" appears across the top rim. At the bottom rim, inscriptions for the weight and denomination read, "1/2 OZ. FINE GOLD~25 DOLLARS."
The 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle is an excellent way to allocate some gold to your investment portfolio and provide some diversification.
