$5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles have historical value for their age and that they were the only coins minted by all 7 US Mint facilities between 1839 and 1908. Half Eagles are made using .900 gold and measure 21.6mm at the diameter.
The Liberty Gold Half Eagle is also called a Liberty Head or Coronet Head because the obverse features a portrait of Liberty wearing a coronet crown with “LIBERTY” written across it. She is ringed by 13 stars signifying the 13 original colonies and the date of minting at the bottom. The reverse is dominated by a bald eagle holding arrows and olive branches in its talons behind a heraldic shield. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA - FIVE D” is written around the edge of all Liberty Heads and “IN GOD WE TRUST” can be seen in ribbons above the eagle on coins struck after 1866.
A complete set of Liberty Heads from all 7 US Mint facilities is prized by some collectors and the coins can be distinguished between by the various mint marks on the reverse. Gainesville Coins is offering these $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles in raw, "commercial uncirculated" condition and from random dates based upon availability.
