Inspired by Benjamin West’s famous painting Omnia Vincit Amor (Love Conquers All), the obverse features a portrait of Lady Liberty. Her hair is tied back with hanging curls. She wears a coronet inscribed with the word “LIBERTY.” You’ll also find the year of issue on this side.
Modeled after the Great Seal of the United States, the reverse features a heraldic eagle with a striped shield on its breast. It holds arrows and an olive branch in its talons. This design by Christian Gobrecht offered the American people hope for stability and assurance in a time of great social and technological change. The denomination and mintmark are inscribed.
The Liberty Head Half Eagle $5 piece was first introduced in 1839. It shared a design with the new Eagles releases the year prior and the Quarter Eagles that would be produced the following year. This allowed the US Mint to continue its long-standing tradition of uniformity among sovereign coins. These coins were produced through 1908 at various mint locations, noted by the mintmark on the reverse.
The coins in this category will have a randomized year of issue, depending on our current inventory. Each of them is in the condition of almost uncirculated or better.
Coins may come in plastic flips or tubes, depending on the quantity within your order.

" I wanted to shift a little retirement money into a type set of US Pre-33 gold and was looking for a reasonable outlet. The coin I received did not disappoint. Really nice strike, AU, and something I'll be proud to hold onto through years until I need it."
