$5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles Shows Why It is Important

The smaller denominations of these coins makes it a fitting addition to any collection. The $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles have survived the test of time and the remaining $5 Liberty Gold Eagles have an appeal to all investors and collectors. These smaller denomination Pre-1933 Gold coins were widely circulated between 1838 to 1908, and they have the distinction of being the only Gold coin, in any denomination, to be struck at all seven U.S. Mint locations. This is a testament to its popularity during its run in circulation. The surviving coins are sought by collectors for its importance as a Gold coin and as an investment piece.

Cleaned $5 Liberty Gold Eagles are Rare and Important Historically

Not many investors or collectors own Gold bullion circulated over 100 years ago. The cleaned $5 Liberty Gold Eagles adds a nice addition to any Gold investment because its value is so high. A surviving coin from the unprecedented legislation of 1933 forcing Gold coins be returned to the United States Treasury adds historical flare and value to these Gold coins. The smaller denomination also helps new and experienced investors work within their budget and investment strategies. The Liberty Gold Eagle was one of the most popular designs during its time in circulation and today you can own one at competitive prices.

Liberty Eagle Design one of the Finest Ever Produced

Before the Liberty Eagle's run in circulation, there were few coin designs that drew inspiring glances from the public. That changed with the inception of the $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle. The design was so unlike any that it garnered a new sense of patriotism and American ideals. The obverse of the coin features a left-facing Liberty with 13 stars encircling the coin. On the reverse, an eagle with a shield over its breast as it carries an olive branch and arrows is on display. This design helped renew and beautify American coinage for a time, before the passing of its designer, Christian Gobrecht.

1893 $5

By  Henrick Romanov

from Kaliningrad, Russia

5.0

I received my 1893 $5 the other day. It's an absolutely charming little coin. APMEX had it listed as "cleaned". HOWEVER, it looked as though time has completely forgot it. Don't let its smaller size fool you! It's quite a hefty little coin. Why I have a con selected..... I ticked "hard to sell" because you will find this little beauty hard to part with!

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • Hard to Sell

Great coin

The coin I received was in great shape. If it weren't for that fact that it was cleaned, which I knew before ordering, it would grade well from one of the grading service companies. I will be buying more soon.

$5 Half Eagles

By  Oilfield worker

from Bakken

5.0

I just wanted some old US gold that would be safe to handle. I can't impair the value of the coin, but I can feel it in my hand and show it to people. Plus, it's fun to own history. A MS63 or so coin might be impressive, but no one ever used it to buy gin in a speakeasy in the Roaring Twenties like a coin with some wear might have.

Pros

  • Recognized Brand
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell

I bought this coin because a $5 gold piece was something I always dreamed about finding with my metal detector. I received an 1899 San Francisco Mint coin in extremely fine condition, one I was proud to show to friends as an example of how money used to look like.

Pros

  • Attractive Design
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Easy to Sell
  • Recognized Brand

Cons

  • None

good value

By  Radio op/coin collector

Coin was cleaned, but at least AU 50-52 cleaned condition and date was fairly old, 1880. It was more than I expected, and I could probably sell today for what I paid for it or close.

Pros

  • Easy to Sell
  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design
  • Mint Condition

Not Quite Up to Snuff

By  AR

from South Dakota

2.0

I ordered this half eagle knowing that it was a cleaned coin, so the scuffing and obviously dipped appearance wasn't an issue at all. However, it seems that the coin was once soldered into a setting (or something of that type) and it has a rather ugly protuberance along the rim. As such, even with the lower premium put on this cleaned coin, it did not quite meet the quality standards that I've come to expect from APMEX.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Attractive Design

Cons

  • Common (higher mintage)
  • Poor Condition
