The $5 Gold Half Eagle Liberty Head are Pre-­1933 gold coins that are extremely popular in the numismatic world. Enthusiastic numismatists love to collect these coins as they are rare to find. Due to their intrinsic value being much greater than their face value, they are also favored by investors. They were minted from 1839­-1908 and they were minted at seven different US Mint branches. The designer of the coin is Christian Gobrecht and the design has a neoclassic influence to it, hence has amazing artistic appeal too.

  • 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 have seen a glorious 134 years of circulation and was one of the favorite coins among Americans then and even now for collecting and investing purposes. The coins were first minted in 1795 after the Act of April 2, 1792 authorized the US Mint to mint these coins. These coins were minted from 1795-­1929 and have seen several changes in designs.

The Liberty Head was minted from 1839 and the coin was designed by Christian Gobrecht. The coin is also known as Coronet Head because the obverse features a bust portrait of Lady Liberty wearing a coronet with inscription “LIBERTY” on it.

The reverse design 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. Has inscriptions “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “FIVE D,” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”

The Liberty Head is classified into two groups based on the reverse design. The coins minted from 1839­-1866 are known as coins without motto which do not have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST.” The coins minted from 1866­-1908 have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” on a banner above the eagle.

Apart from this another major change is the predecessors of Half Eagle Liberty Head Gold coins had the engraved denomination “5 D” on the reverse, with Liberty Head, it was changed to “FIVE D.”

Other than these two changes, there were no other major changes made to the Liberty Head for almost 70 years. It is one of the longest running series amongst the Half Eagles.

These are rare to find coins with historical significance. Since they are not minted anymore, they have fixed supply while the demand for it is growing day by day. Adding these to your investment portfolio will make it very impressive along with the stability and diversification it provides.
