$5 Gold Half Eagle Liberty Head - Almost Uncirculated AU (Random Year)

 

Introduction:

The $5 Gold Half Eagle Liberty Heads have been one of the longest running series in the American coinage history. Although there were millions of it minted, in 1933 most of them were confiscated and were out of circulation, so it is hard to find these coins today. The designer of the coin is Christian Gobrecht. These coins were minted from 1839-­1908.

  • Reverse: Features a heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast and holding olive branches and arrows in its talons, design inspired from the Great Seal of United States. Inscriptions – “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “FIVE D.” Two types in reverse design – without motto (1839­-1866) and with motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” on a banner above the eagle (1866­-1908).

Detailed Information:

The Gold Half Eagles were minted in 1795 after the Act of April 2, 1792 authorized the production of these coins. These coins were minted from 1795-1929. Through its elaborate history of 134 years, the coin went through different changes in designs on its obverse and reverse. Many renowned sculptors and engravers have worked on the designs of the Gold Half Eagle.

There were Turban Heads, Draped Bust, Classic Head, Liberty Head, and finally ending in Indian Head. Each design was created by a renowned sculptor or artist or engraver.

Out of these, the Liberty Head was the longest running series without seeing any major changes for a long period of almost 70 years. The designer of this coin was Christian Gobrecht, the chief engraver of the United States Mint at that time. He designed a beautiful left facing bust portrait of Lady Liberty wearing a coronet on her head with inscriptions “LIBERTY” on it. Thus Liberty Head also gets the name Coronet Head. There is a neo classical influence in his work.

The coin is grouped into two separate groups due to its reverse design. The first type is called as without motto, where there is no motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” above the eagle. The second type is called with motto, where there that motto is engraved on a banner above the eagle head. The first type was minted from 1839­-1866 and the second type was minted from 1866­-1908.

Another main change in this Liberty Head is the addition of the denomination in words as “FIVE D.” Before that, the previous coins had the denomination inscribed as “5 D.”

The Liberty Head is distinct because this was the only US coin, a single design, which was being produced at 7 different US Mint facilities which are Philadelphia, Dahlonega, New Orleans, Charlotte, Denver, San Francisco, and Carson City. Those coins which were struck at Philadelphia has no silver alloy in them instead using .900 gold and .100 copper. However, those coins minted at southern branch mints of Dahlonega and Charlotte had a high natural silver content.

At competitive premiums, the $5 Gold Half Eagle Liberty Heads are a great investment for those who are looking to indulge in Pre-­1933 coins. The Half Eagles are also an affordable option compared to their higher denominations such as Gold Eagles and Gold Double Eagles. These coins are also rare to come by due to the history of confiscation in 1933. This is your chance to add some prestigious coins from the American coinage history to your investment portfolio.
