The Liberty Head Gold Coins

One of the most commonly known US Gold Coin designs of the Pre-1933 Gold Coins is the outstanding Lady Liberty Gold Coin. The Liberty Head coin is considered to be the most beloved collectible produced by the US Mint, being released shortly after the 1840s gold rush and were produced until 1908 when the Indian Head Gold Coins replaced them. The Liberty Head design is featured on the $1$2.5, $5, $10 gold coins and the Liberty 20 dollar gold coin, also called the Double Eagle, just like the St Gaudens Gold Coin. The 5 Dollar Liberty Gold Coin, also known as the Half Eagle Gold Coin, was in circulation during 1795 and 1929 and carried several different designs, but the Liberty head refers particularly to the coins manufactured between 1839 and 1908. The design of this Liberty 5 Dollar Gold Coin is very special because it is more intricate than the previous edition and featured a “Five D'inscription of the face value instead of the previous “5D”. Also, the Liberty Head design was adopted in the same year when the coins stopped from being minted with silver content. These coins were made of 90% gold and 10% copper, and their exclusivity also underlines the fact that they were manufactured at 7 different facilities of the US Mint. During the first mintages, the coin’s face value matched the coin’s intrinsic value in gold. However, since the price of gold increased over time, this coin is very desired due to its collectible and gold value. The same arguments stand for the other available sizes of the Liberty Head Gold Coin.

The Design of Liberty Head Gold Coins

The design of the Liberty Gold Coins belongs to the remarkable artist Christian Gobrecht, who chose a neoclassicist style that was very popular at the beginning of the 19th century. The obverse of the Liberty Gold coin features the profile of Lady Liberty, adorned with an elegant coronet with the inscription “Liberty” atop of her beautiful curly hair. Her profile is encircled by 13 stars that symbolize the 13 original U.S. colonies. On the obverse side of the Liberty Gold Dollar coin is also engraved the year in which it was minted. On the reverse of the Liberty Gold is represented the American eagle with widespread wings holding in its talons a cluster of arrows and an olive branch and carrying a shield across its chest. The reverse side of the Liberty Head Gold Coin also contains the “In God We Trust” and “United States of America” inscriptions, as well as the coin’s face value.
