Christian Gobrecht’s Coronet design, also called the Liberty Head type, made its appearance in the half eagle series in 1839. The obverse displays a female head facing left, her hair tied in a bun secured by a string of beads, wearing a coronet inscribed LIBERTY, stars surrounding, with the date below. The reverse shows an eagle with a shield on its breast, perched on an olive branch and holding three arrows. The inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, FIVE D. surrounds.
Coins were produced mainly at the Philadelphia Mint on a continuous basis during the entire span. Additional pieces were made from time to time at Carson City, Charlotte, Dahlonega, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco. In general, Charlotte and Dahlonega pieces are scarce.
