Produced between 1839 and 1908, the $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle – also known as Liberty Head – remains the only coin to have been struck at all 7 US Mints. This numismatic legacy, combined with the Liberty Head's .2419 troy ounces of .900 pure gold makes it a valuable addition to any collection. These Raw Liberty Head Half Eagle $5 Gold Coins XF have not been certified by a professional grading service (hence the term “raw”). The XF designation describes their general “Extremely Fine” condition.
The obverse features a bust of Lady Liberty facing left, her hair cascading down her neck and crowned with a coronet inscribed with “LIBERTY”. The bust is surrounded by 13 six-pointed stars representing the original 13 colonies. The reverse shows a classical shielded bald eagle holding three arrows in one claw and an olive branch in the other, the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - FIVE D” circle the edge. Liberty Heads struck after 1866 also have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” on the reverse.
