Why purchase this specially labeled 1899 Gold Liberty Head Half Eagle $5 coin?
The Liberty Head Gold Half Eagle series, introduced by the U.S. Mint in 1839, featured a design created by the Mint's third Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht. The series was minted continuously until 1908, when the Gold Half Eagle coin was redesigned as part of President Theodore Roosevelt's grand scheme to invigorate the nation's coinage with bold imagery that reflected the country's growth and diversity.
Gorgeous Representations of Liberty and Freedom
Obverse: Liberty is personified on the obverse as a young woman posed facing left, with her hair gathered in an elegant knot by a beaded ribbon. Thirteen stars frame the portrait, with "LIBERTY" inscribed upon her coronet and the year of issue "1899" below.
Reverse: An eagle appears on the reverse with a Union Shield at its breast, grasping a trio of arrows and an olive branch, with "IN GOD WE TRUST" inscribed on a banner above. The heraldic design is encircled by the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "FIVE D."
