Extremely rare Whitley Mint 1/2 Troy oz .999+ fine gold round.
This medallion was minted at a small mint operated by Harold Whitley in Darby, Montana in 1983. As near as we can tell these rounds did not travel much beyond the state borders.
Ironically Mr Whitley received a trademark for the name "American Eagle" in 1981, 5 years before the US Mint started producing theirs. It is unknown if they had to pay any royalties as the trademark status shows that the the trademark was abandoned in 1983.
Obverse has an eagle facing left, with the inscription "AMERICAN EAGLE" above and "WHITLEY MINT" below, the reverse has "1/2 oz .999+ Fine Gold" inside a circle, with "HALF EAGLE" above and 5 stars below.
Round is in brilliant uncirculated condition, almost proof-like.
Only 1 available.
