Just in time for the spring graduation and wedding gift-giving seasons, the United States Mint is offering some of its flagship products, the American Eagle Gold Proof Coins. These coins are also a great way to honor that special person on Motherís or Fatherís Day.†
American Eagle Gold Proof Coins are collector versions of the official United States Mint American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins and are available in limited mintages in four sizes–one ounce, one-half ounce, one-quarter ounce, and one-tenth ounce, as well as a four-coin set containing one coin in each size. The 2014 American Eagle One-Half Ounce Gold Proof Coin is packaged in a velvet, satin-lined presentation case and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
The obverse features Augustus Saint-Gaudensí full-length figure of Liberty with flowing hair holding a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The reverse design, executed by sculptor Miley Busiek, features a male eagle carrying an olive branch flying above a nest containing a female eagle and her eaglets.
