2018 1/2 oz Gold American Eagle $25 GEM BU
Why order this $25 2018 1/2 oz. Gold American Eagle?
This $25 American 2018 1/2 oz. Gold Eagle is a great option for collectors who are looking for a coin with substantial diameter to appreciate the details of the iconic Saint-Gaudens design but who do not want to pay for a full ounce. It is also a fantastic choice for collectors who like relatively low mintage pieces, as the 1/2 oz. issue has almost always been the lowest issue of the Gold Eagles. The coin was struck at the West Point Mint from .9167 fine gold.
Traditional Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the image that appears on the obverse for the double eagle, and it proved so popular that it was brought back for this series in 1986. It was, however, slightly adapted, with four additional stars included along the rim to account for the states that joined the union in the interim. At the center stands Liberty, a powerful figure who sets one foot upon a stone. She holds two iconic symbols, her torch of freedom and an olive branch, a symbol of peace. The Capitol Dome is in the lower left, standing like Liberty against the backdrop of the rays of the rising sun.
The reverse image was the work of Miley Busiek. It consists of a mother eagle nestling her young as she watches her mate return bearing an olive branch.
