About the 2018 1/2 Oz American Gold Eagle (BU)

Though the one-ounce coins are the most popular iteration of the American Gold Eagle, the US Mint also produces these half-ounce coins. The quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce coins have also been produced since the Gold Eagle's first year of production. These coins mark the 32nd anniversary of the series' introduction in 1986.

Highlights of this Coin:

  • Purity is 22 karat, or 91.66%, with the balance comprised of silver/copper. This alloy makes the coins more durable than pure gold coins and resistant to most handling damage.
  • Manufactured by the US Mint. Guaranteed by the US Government.
  • The US Secret Service actively seeks out and prosecutes counterfeiters of this coin.
  • Legal tender in the United States with a face value of $25.
  • Narrow Bid / Ask Spread (the buy and sell price difference is small) because of investor confidence and high liquidity.
  • Individually shipped in vinyl flips. Multiples of 20 are shipped in original mint tubes.

 

Fractional weight gold coins are useful for investors of all wealth levels. They permit an entry into the gold market for those who might not want, or may not be financially able, to invest in a full ounce of gold. Additionally, these half-ounce coins allow for more control over how much gold an investor may buy or sell at any one time. This gives gold investors much greater financial flexibility. In addition to these half-ounce coins, the US Mint also produces quarter-ounce and tenth-ounce coins for even greater control.

By law, all the gold in American Gold Eagles must be sourced in the US. American Gold Eagles of all sizes are actually comprised of an alloy of 91.67% gold, 3.00% silver, and 5.33% copper. This composition makes the coins slightly larger and stronger; the silver-copper alloy hardens the metal, making it more resistant to marks and scratches. Each Gold Eagle actually weighs more than its denomination would indicate, but contains the full amount of gold as labeled; for example, these half-ounce gold eagles actually weigh 0.545 oz, but contain exactly one half ounce of gold.

The legal tender status of these coins means the integrity of this coin supply is actively protected by the US Secret Service. The government actively seeks out and prosecutes would-be counterfeiters. The international recognition of the US Mint means it will be easy to find a buyer should it come time to sell your gold. These coins are widely-traded coins with a minimal bid/ask spread, meaning there is very little difference between the buy and sell prices when compared to less common items.

On the obverse, Lady Liberty walks towards the holder with an olive branch in one hand and a torch in the other as the sun rises behind her. Surrounding the edge of the coin are stars. At the top is the word “LIBERTY” and near the bottom right the date.

The reverse side of these coins shows the American Eagle bringing back an olive branch to his nest, where the mother and baby eagles await. Stamped around the edge are the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM” (meaning “from many, one” in Latin, which refers to the original 13 American Colonies), and “IN GOD WE TRUST.” At the bottom of every coin is stamped its weight, metal type, and legal tender value.
