Liberty Head $2.50 Gold Coin

Liberty Head $2.50 Gold Coin (1840-1907)

The Classic Liberty $2.50 Gold coin, sometimes called the Classic Head Quarter Eagle, is a Gold coin struck by the United States Mint from 1840 to 1907. The coin bears an effigy of Liberty on its obverse and an eagle on the reverse.

These beautiful gold coins are made of a 90 percent gold and 10 percent copper alloy. These coins feature a spare design, beautiful in its simplicity. Besides Liberty and the eagle, the coin design also sports encircling stars and a dainty ridged border around the coin’s rim.

Classic Liberty Head $2.5 Gold Coin Values

Dealers and collectors alike may be willing to pay an extremely high premium for a Classic Liberty $2.50 Gold Coin if it is the right edition in exceptional condition. Generally, these coins may fetch about $200 on the coin market. But, as an example, an 1877 in good condition may be traded for about $250 while an 1881 in uncirculated condition may garner as much as $4400. If you have a $2.50 Gold Liberty Head of a desirable mintage year, or one that seems to be in well-preserved condition, you may want to consider having it graded professionally by a coin grading service such as PCGS or NGC.

They will minutely examine your coin and account for any flaws or damage to the coin. A professional service will also verify a coin’s authenticity and precious metal content. When you have your coin graded, you will have an exacting assessment of the coin’s condition as well as reasonable market value. This can provide peace of mind, especially if you are considering selling your coin in the future.

Value and Condition of the Classic Liberty Head $2.50 Gold Coin

You can get an idea of the grade your $2.50 Gold piece may potentially earn by performing a close inspection yourself. Minutely examine one detail, and it will provide a rough idea of what your coin’s grade could be—at least enough for you to decide if you should consult a professional. For example, on the $2.50 Liberty Head Gold coin, you might focus on the eagle’s olive branch and arrows. If the olive branch and arrows are considerably worn down and smoothed out, the coin is likely only in good condition.

If the olive branch and arrows still have good texture but feel slightly worn, then the coin could potentially be in fine condition. If the olive branch and arrows appear to be brand new and show up crisply no visible flaws, then the coin might possibly be in extremely fine condition. All the other details of the coin would have to be in similar condition, of course, but this is a good starting point for a layperson.

 

Value and Mintmarks

On Liberty Head $2.50 Gold coins, the mintmark appears just below the eagle’s feathers on the reverse. These coins were minted at various mint facilities, and the minting location could affect the coin’s value. “D” is for the Dahlonega Mint, while a “C” is for Charlotte. “S” is for San Francisco and the rare “O” indicates a coin struck in New Orleans.
