Just off the truck, brand new from the U.S. Mint, we have a shipment of 2023 1/2 oz gold American eagle coins in brilliant, uncirculated condition. Note all 2023 gold American eagles feature the newer, Type 2 design which debuted in 2021.

The obverse features the Augustus Saint-Gaudens design of Lady Liberty (inspired by the pre-1933 gold double eagle), so it will look familiar. It’s not exactly the same, though… The U.S. Mint went all the way back to Saint-Gaudens’ original bronze casts from 1907 and used modern technologies to more faithfully replicate the original design. A very careful observation will reveal modifications to the capitol building, stars, torch and other details. (See the bottom of this page for a detailed list of design changes from the U.S. Mint.) You’ll note the words “LIBERTY” and the 2023 year of minting on the obverse as well. 

The gold American eagle’s reverse design comes from Artistic Infusion Program’s designer, Jennie Norris, and was scu;pted by medallic artist Renata Gordon. It’s a remarkably lifelike close-up of a bald eagle’s profile. The noble bird of prey seems to make direct eye contact with you. The design is so crisp and vivid you can almost see the eagle’s feathers moving in the wind. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” along with the gold weight of 1/2 oz and its $25 face value.

These 1/2 oz gold “half eagle” coins have been a popular item among collectors for decades. They’re significantly more affordable than their 1 oz big brothers, and therefore accessible to a wider range of coin enthusiasts. Because of their popularity and demand, if you want to ensure you get your brand new 2023 American gold eagle in brilliant uncirculated condition, we recommend buying right now!

About the gold American eagle series

In 1986, the U.S. Mint started making gold coins once again after a hiatus of over 50 years. Back then, modern gold coins were relatively rare. Most bullion buyers relied on either the Krugerrand or the Canadian gold maple leaf. Due to the apartheid-era economic sanctions against South Africa, American gold buyers had money to spend but not a lot of options. So the U.S. Mint decided to give them one, and they had an instant hit on their hands. Nearly every year since, American gold eagle coins in four weights (1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz) have been minted and sold by the millions to collectors and investors worldwide. (Yes, the gold American eagle is incredibly popular outside the U.S. as well – say what you will about America’s reputation overseas, even folks who aren’t big fans of U.S. politics love our gold!)

The combination of exceptional quality year after year, a large number of coins in the marketplace and nigh-insatiable demand have made gold American eagles a favorite for decades.

How long before you ship my order?
Once your payment has cleared, we will begin processing, packaging, and shipping your order. How long this takes varies based on your payment method, the size of your order, and your specific products. Once your order has shipped, you will receive an email confirmation, with a link to find your shipment tracking information on your account page.


Do you ship internationally?
No, not at this time. 


How do you prepare packages for shipment?
All your purchased products are packaged under video surveillance to ensure quality control and packages are carefully and discreetly wrapped in generic corrugated boxes. 


How do you ship my order?
We ship via Registered/Insured U.S. Postal Service and UPS in discreet, secure packaging. Each package is fully insured and may require a signature upon delivery. Packages take 1-10 business days for delivery. We’ll send your tracking number by email when your order ships. 


Is my order insured while in transit?
Yes, BullionMax fully insures all of its shipments. Should anything happen while your package is in transit to you, it will be covered by our insurance policy.
However, we will not accept responsibility if you have left instructions with any carriers or delivery services to leave parcels unattended for you without the need for a signature, or if you have given the carrier instructions to leave your package with anyone other than the addressee. This includes but is not limited to a building manager, neighbor, a business mailroom, drop-off location such as Mail Boxes, etc., The UPS Store, the Military Postal Service, etc.
Additionally, we will not assume responsibility for packages that are signed for by apartment/complex building management, a business mailroom, the Military Postal Service, or any person(s) that are not the addressee listed on the order. When we ship to you, if metals are lost or damaged in transit, it is our responsibility to pursue any claim with the insurance company. If we determine the package is lost or damaged, we file a claim.
We reserve the right to re-ship your items or refund your money at our discretion.


Can you ship my order to my post office box?
No, we cannot ship to a post office box. 


Do I have to sign for my shipment?
Packages we ship may not require a signature for delivery. Expedited shipping, whether via UPS or the U.S. Postal Service, requires a signature for delivery.


Do you ship to U.S. territories?
We do not ship to US territories. Due to special requirements set by the postal systems, we are unable to ship outside of U.S. states.


What does “No Will Call” mean?
All UPS shipments ship with a “No Will Call” restriction, meaning the package cannot be picked up from a UPS location or just left at the delivery address. This is a precaution to prevent orders from being fraudulently intercepted. UPS will make three delivery attempts. If nobody is available at the delivery address to sign and accept delivery, the package will be returned to us.


Where do you ship orders from?
All orders will ship from our warehouse in Los Angeles, California.  We conceal the return address on all packages so as to not hint at the contents of the package.


Do you offer UPS shipping to Alaska and Hawaii?
No, we do not. The costs of shipping to these states are extremely prohibitive, so we utilize USPS on all shipments to Alaska and Hawaii.


Do we ship to P.O. Boxes?
No, we do not. Sorry.


Do you ship to UPS store locations?
No. UPS 3-Day Air service excludes shipments to UPS Stores, as well as Alaska, Hawaii and APO addresses.


My package appears to have been damaged or tampered with. What should I do?
We recommend you refuse any shipment that appears to be damaged or tampered with because the shipping insurance ends once signed for and/or delivered. When refused, the package(s) will return to BullionMax for inspection. 
If you have taken possession of a damaged or tampered package, please save all packaging and contact call us at (800) 729-3202 during normal business hours of 6 a.m. to 5 p.m. (PT) Monday – Friday within 48 hours for further instructions. Failure to notify us of damage or tampering within 48 hours from signature or delivery date may impact our ability to cover your claim.


What happens if my order is lost in transit?
We see very few delivery issues with our carriers, but sometimes delays do occur. In those situations, we appreciate your patience to wait a little longer for your package (at least 7 business days) before contacting us. Should the package not arrive, an investigation of the shipment is required before any order is reshipped or refunded. We may ask you to file a police report if it appears loss is due to theft or tampering. Your assistance speeds up the investigation and the sooner we complete it, the sooner we can resolve the missing order.
