Gainesville Coins offers raw Liberty Head Quarter Eagle Gold Coins in generally “CU” (Commercial Uncirculated) condition. “Raw” is a numismatic term for coins that have not been graded by a professional grading service. Made with .1209 oz of gold, the Liberty Quarter Eagle Gold Coin was minted from 1840 to 1907. The name “Quarter Eagle” for the $2.50 gold coin came from the fact that it was one quarter the value of the $10 gold coin, known as an “Eagle”. The Coronet Liberty design by Christian Gobrecht was said to have been inspired by Benjamin West’s painting “Omnia Vincit Amor” (Love Conquers All). Unlike the larger US gold coins of the time, the Liberty Quarter Eagle was too small to have the motto “In God We Trust” placed above the eagle.
Patriotic Lady Liberty looking left is features on the obverse of the coin. Her hair is pulled up behind a wide coronet inscribed with the word, “LIBERTY.” Thirteen stars encircle Lady Liberty representing the Thirteen Colonies of the United States. The date appears on the bottom of the coin below Lady Liberty.
The reverse features an American Bald Eagle in a heraldic stance. Gripping an olive branch in its right talon, representing Peace, and three arrows in its left, representing War. The Eagle looks toward the olive branch, symbolizing the nation's preference for Peace. The reverse legend encircles the coin, “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” and an abbreviated denomination of, “2½ D”
