About the 1980 1/2 oz Gold American Arts Marian Anderson Medallion

The American Arts Commemorative Series was launched to offer a collection of gold bullion medallions celebrating American artistic achievements. Struck in .900 gold alloy, the same composition used for American gold coins until 1933, these medallions were produced in two sizes: 1 troy ounce and 1/2 troy ounce.

Key Features of the 1980 1/2 oz Gold American Arts Marian Anderson Medallion:

  • Gold Content: 1/2 troy ounce of .900 fine gold.
  • Design:
    • Obverse: Features a detailed portrait of Marian Anderson, the acclaimed American contralto singer celebrated for her exceptional vocal talent and historic performances.
    • Reverse: Displays the series’ emblem, featuring artistic elements that reflect the significance of American culture and achievements.

Historical Significance

While the American Arts Commemorative Series aimed to establish a new benchmark in gold bullion offerings, it faced several challenges. Sales were lower than expected due to logistical issues, such as a complicated ordering process, and concerns over the medallions’ lack of clear indications of issuing authority, gold content, and legal tender status.

Despite these obstacles, the series was instrumental in paving the way for the successful creation of the American Eagle gold and silver bullion coin series, which has since become a cornerstone of American numismatics.

Why Buy the 1980 1/2 oz Gold American Arts Marian Anderson Medallion?

  • Historical Rarity: This medallion is a unique collectible from the American Arts Commemorative Series.
  • Investment Opportunity: Made from .900 fine gold, it offers both collectible and investment value.
