2023 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin

One of the most sought-after gold coins in the bullion market releases its 2023 edition. The American Gold Eagles celebrates its 38th year of production, and they are available for purchase in the traditional 1 Troy oz size, along with fractional 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. The ½ oz coin is the largest of the fractional-ounce coins. Today, 2023 1/2 oz American Gold Eagles are available to you online from SD Bullion.

Coin Highlights

  • Contains 1/2 oz of 22k (.9167) fine gold;
  • Eligible for IRAs;
  • Face value of $25 and legal tender status backed by the US Federal Government;
  • The obverse features Lady Liberty, by Saint Gaudens;
  • The reverse displays the new bald eagle design by Jennie Norris.

The Design

The obverse displays a creation of Augustus Saint Gaudens from 1905. Lady Liberty walks forward, determined, with the US Capitol in the background. With the sun behind her and 46 stars surrounding the image, she carries a torch and an olive branch, meaning light and peace for the upcoming years. The words engraved are the year of mintage and “LIBERTY” on the upper rim.

The reverse of the 2023 Gold Eagle stamps the 35th-anniversary new design, signed by Jennie Norris. The Heraldic Eagle got a left-profile close-up portrait in relief. The hooked beak and the deep gaze in the eagle’s eye are outstanding. The inscriptions on this side contain “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” and the two mottos “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” lined up. Beneath the Eagle’s depiction, discreetly placed, there are Jennie Norris’ initials and on the bottom, read “25 DOLLARS” and “1/2 OZ FINE GOLD,” standing for the face value, weight, and precious metal content. 

Security Features

The 2023 1/2 oz American Gold Eagles have an improved anti-counterfeiting mechanism. The edges contain a reeded variation. It is a small piece of a plain surface randomly placed in between the reeds pattern.

2023 ½ oz American Gold Eagle Mintage

The 1/2 oz Gold Eagle follows the same alloy proportions as its 1 oz counterpart. Each coin weighs 0.5454 troy oz (16.965 g). It contains precisely 1/2 oz of pure gold, but the US Mint adds 3% silver and 5.33% copper to the alloy to make the coin more resistant and durable. That means the coin is actually 22-karat gold (.9167 fineness).

The American Eagle Program

Since its first release in 1986, the Gold Eagle has been the official gold coin in the USA. Their gold composition sets these coins apart from other similar gold bullion coins available in the market. American Gold Eagles, including 1 troy ounce and the fractional sizes, are all 22-karat gold, meaning they are less malleable than their competitors, like the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf. However, they are guaranteed to contain the amount of pure gold indicated on the coin’s reverse, as the silver and copper are added on top of the full weight of pure gold.

Over the years, the American Eagle Program has released bullion coins in gold, silver, platinum, and palladium. Gold Eagles are available in four different weights and finishes: Bullion, Burnished, and Proof.

Why invest in Gold Eagles?

Gold Eagles are the official gold coin of the USA. Besides the credibility of being a legal tender American coin, they are eligible for IRAs.

Each coin contains 1/2 oz of pure gold. In terms of investment, it is wise to maintain a diversified investment portfolio. Bullion tends to remain less prone to devaluation, so its acquisition may be a sensible investment option.

Gold Eagles also carry a lot of history through their designs. Because of that, collectors who appreciate some art and numismatics in coins may enjoy investing in items that carry more value than their intrinsic value.
