Why purchase this Extremely Fine $5 Gold 1854 Liberty Head Half Eagle coin?

The Gold Liberty Head Half Eagle coin series was issued by the U.S. Mint for nearly seven decades, from 1839 until 1907. Designed by third U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht, the coin featured imagery that also appeared on the $10 Eagle and $2.50 Quarter Eagle coins released during the same time period. This coin, containing 0.2419 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, is one of the 160,675 Liberty Head Gold Half Eagle coins struck at the Philadelphia Mint in 1854.

Beautifully Detailed Designs

Lady Liberty is portrayed as a young woman facing left on the obverse, surrounded by thirteen six-pointed stars. Her hair is elegantly styled, tamed with a strand of pearls and a crown inscribed with the word "LIBERTY." The date of issue "1854" is positioned below.

A heraldic eagle with a striped shield at its breast is featured on the reverse, clutching three arrows and an olive branch. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE D."
