Additional Information and Historical Significance:
The $5 Gold Liberty Head (also known as the “Half Eagle” or “$5 Coronet Head”) was introduced in 1866 and was minted for 42 years, ending in 1908. Designed by Christian Gobrecht the $5 Gold Liberty Head is very similar in design to the $2.5 Gold Liberty Head, which was modeled after the Coronet-type Large Cent issued from 1816-1857., The $5 Gold Half Eagle was originally given its name by the Coinage Act of 1792, as a derivation from the U.S. $10 gold coin, known as the Gold Eagle. The purchasing power of a Gold Half Eagle in the 1800s would be equivalent to about $65-$85 today.
With the last coin minted over 100 years ago, the $5 Gold Liberty Head continues to be in high demand by investors and collectors throughout the world. Many investors select certified Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins over modern gold bullion due to the historical significance and collectability of the coins. Historically, certified pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins retain their value better when the spot price of gold falls and appreciates in value when the spot price of gold rises. Certified Pre-1933 U.S. Gold coins are a great way to invest in the gold market and the collectibles market, with a single product.
The obverse portrays a left-facing, crowned bust of Miss Liberty. The reverse depicts an American bald eagle clutching an olive branch and arrows in its talons.
