Why purchase this 1886-S $5 Gold Liberty Head Half Eagle coin?

The U.S. Mint issued the Liberty Head $5 Gold Half Eagle coin from 1839 until 1908. The series featured a design by third U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht, which was common to the $10 eagle and $2.50 quarter eagle gold coins. This coin represents one of the 3,268,000 Half Eagles struck from 0.2419 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the San Francisco Mint in 1886.

Stunning Designs Symbolizing Liberty, Peace and Freedom

Lady Liberty is depicted on the obverse, surrounded by thirteen stars. Liberty's bound hair is threaded with pearls, and held in place by a crown inscribed "LIBERTY." The date of issue "1886" appears below.

A heraldic eagle is featured on the reverse, with three arrows and an olive branch gripped in its talons. The patriotically themed design is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE D." Additional inscriptions include "IN GOD WE TRUST" on a banner above the eagle and the San Francisco Mint's "S" Mint mark below the olive branch.
