$300,000.00 USD

Struck from 1839 to 1908, the $5 Liberty Half Eagle was regarded as the workhorse of America’s gold coins throughout its years of service. Small enough to use in larger transactions, they circulated widely and were often preferred over paper currency.

Struck from 1839-1908, America’s $5 Gold Liberty depicts Lady Liberty with her hair in a tight bun and adorned with a string of beads. She is shown wearing a coronet inscribed with the word “LIBERTY” along with the “1903” year date and a star for each of the original 13 colonies. The reverse features a proud bald eagle standing among olive branches with its wings spread. Mintmark (if any) is located under the eagle's claws. A ribbon above the eagle's head bearing the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added in 1866.

This coin has been struck in nearly a quarter ounce (8.36 gm) of 90% American gold.

The denomination of $5 is shown on the coin’s reverse where it reads “FIVE D” Below the talons of the majestic American eagle. Only 154 proofs minted. Pop 1.
