SKU: 15144

  • The $5 Liberty Head Half Eagle gold coin is 21.6 mm in diameter, has a reeded edge, a total weight of 0.24187 troy ounces (or 8.359 grams) and a face value of $5.

  • Contains a metal composition of 90% gold and 10% copper.

  • Minted from 1839-1908, with a modest change in 1866, when “In God We Trust” was placed on the reverse above the eagle.

  • The obverse (front) designed by Chrisitian Gobrecht features Liberty's hair tied in a bun and secured by a string of pearls. She is facing left and also wears a coronet in her hair inscribed with the word LIBERTY. The simplicity of the design was largely unaffected by the addition of the date below her profile and thirteen stars around the perimeter.

  • The reverse (back) displays a heraldic bald eagle clutching a cluster of arrows in his left talon and an olive branch in his right. His wings are proudly spread from rim to rim with the union shield on his chest. The denomination can be seen below his talons while encircling him is written the words “United States of America”.
