2023 NGC MS-70 Early Release 1/2 oz American Gold Eagle Coin

Smaller than the standard 1 oz gold coin but the heaviest among its fractional counterparts, the ½ oz gold coin may be an exciting variation for those who enjoy versatility.

This American Gold Eagle coin follows the usual standards of the collection. It is a 22-k gold coin with legal tender status and denomination backed by the US Mint. The motif stamped on the series is also the same: Saint Gaudens’ Lady Liberty and Jennie Norris’ new Bald Eagle design.

This particular coin is an NGC MS-70 Early Release Gold Eagle. It means that this coin was minted within the first 30 days of the series production and submitted to the NGC grading and certification.

You can now purchase these Graded American Gold Eagles online from SD Bullion.

The Design

The obverse displays Lady Liberty walking forward, with the US Capitol on her feet, heading to the future. In the image, she carries a torch and an olive branch, meaning light and peace for the upcoming years. Sun rays are in her background, with the word “LIBERTY” on the upper rim and the year of issuance on the bottom. The design is a creation of Augustus Saint Gaudens, which dates back to 1905.

The new reverse, released in 2021, is a 35th-anniversary celebration of the program. It showcases the new Bald Eagle, designed by Jennie Norris, in a left-profile close-up with a hooked beak and deep gaze. The engraved information contains “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” lined up. On the bottom, read “25 DOLLARS” for the denomination, and “½ OZ FINE GOLD,” standing for weight and metal content.

The NGC Grade

NGC stands for Numismatic Guaranty Company. This service evaluates and grades coins based on their condition and authenticity, using the Sheldon Grading Scale, which is recognized and respected worldwide. 

A particular coin graded MS, or Mint State, has the same shape as a business strike coin, made for widespread circulation. The number 70 attributed is the highest, meaning it does not present visible imperfections or signs of use.

2023 ½ oz American Gold Eagle Mintage

½ oz Gold Eagles contain ½ oz of 22k gold, meaning that 91.67% of its composition is pure gold. Adding 3% silver and 5.33% copper, Gold Eagles are more resistant and durable. The alloy does not compromise its fineness since the percentage of silver and copper is an addition to the total gold weight.

The 2023 edition of American Gold Eagles, including the ½ oz coin, have edges with a reeded variation. It is a small piece of a plain surface, randomly inserted within the reeds pattern to avoid counterfeiting.

Why invest in Gold Eagles

Gold Eagles are the official gold coin of the USA and enjoy the high recognition attributed to all US Mint’s products. They are legal tender, with a guaranteed denomination, and eligible for IRAs.

As bullion tends to remain less prone to devaluation, it may be wise to have some gold bullion items in a varied investment portfolio, making Gold Eagles an interesting asset.

Gold Eagles' design carries a lot of history and patriotism. Because of that, coin collectors who may enjoy some numismatics in such pieces would find it exciting to have valuable bullion items in their collection.
