Since 1986, the Half Ounce Gold Eagle has been minted every year along with the 1 ounce, 1⁄4 ounce, and 1/10 gold eagles and the 1 ounce Silver Eagle. A total of around 40,000 half-ounce gold eagles have been minted each year in recent years. This figure has gradually declined from 110,000 all the way down to 30,000 in 2019.
The 1/2 oz Gold American Eagles mintage
The Gold Eagle is minted using 22-karat gold (.9167 in purity) by the US Mint and carries a total of one troy ounce of pure gold. This means that the coin itself would be heavier than coins that have a purity of .9999 gold, such as the Gold Maple Leaf & Gold Britannia.
The 2021 Gold Eagle Design
With a torch in her left hand and an olive branch in her right, the obverse of the 1/2 oz Gold Eagles shows Lady Liberty proudly striding ahead. Behind her, you can see the US Capitol Building, and the rim of the coin is lined with six-pointed stars. With the word "LIBERTY" at the very top of the coin, and 2021 golden eagles will be minted to the right of it.
On the reverse in the middle of the design, these gold coins show a family of bald eagles. The father, with an olive branch, clutched in his heels, lands in the nest while the mother holds two eaglets in her wings. The nest consists of mostly olive branches, representing unity. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA "is minted with" 1/2 OZ at the top of the coin. Written at the very bottom of FINE GOLD~25 DOLLARS. To the left of the nest, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" is minted, and "IN GOD WE TRUST" is minted to the right of the nest.
