Why Choose This AU53 1836 $5 Gold Half Eagle?

Gold coins were issued for circulation by the U.S. Mint for many years. This actually didn't stop until the early 1930s. The Half Eagle offered here has a face value of $5. It was struck in 1836 at the Philadelphia branch of the U.S. Mint. There were 553,147 of these minted. This exact design wasn't in use for many years, but the 1836 Half Eagle has one of the higher mintage figures from that period.

Classic Liberty Design by Kneass

The obverse and reverse of this coin display the work of William Kneass. A portrait of Liberty is depicted on the obverse. She is surrounded by 13 stars and the date is just below her neck. Liberty has finely detailed hair that is long and curly.

The reverse shows a bald eagle with arrows and an olive branch in its talons. Plenty of details can be seen in the eagle's feathers, it has a shield over its chest. The face value is inscribed below the eagle.


The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) was selected to certify this classic gold coin. It was awarded the grade of About Uncirculated 53 (AU 53). That means this specimen has some light wear and practically all of its original details.
