Why add the 1901-S Liberty Head $5 Gold Half Eagles NGC MS65 Green Label to your collection?

Pre-33 U.S. Gold coinage is a brilliant way to make history come alive in your collection. The U.S. Mint began striking the Liberty, or Coronet Head $5 Half Eagle in 1839. This 1901-S Liberty Head $5 Gold Half Eagle example earned the spectacular Mint State 65 (MS65) grade from the graders at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) and also earned the right to bear NGC's Green Label which was developed in collaboration with Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA).

  • The coin carries NGC's distinctive Green Label
  • The mintage of this issue is 3,648,000.
  • The coin was struck at the San Francisco branch.
  • This coin was struck on 8.36 grams of .900 fine gold
  • This series was struck and circulated for nearly 70 years, making it one of the most enduring designs in American Coinage.
  • Christian Gobrecht, 3rd Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint served as designer.

Classic American Coinage Design

Obverse: The obverse of the coin features the left-facing Liberty with a small inscribed crown with the word "Liberty." Her hair is tied together with a strand of beads. The Liberty Head design was influenced by the Neoclassical artistic movement.

Reverse: The reverse design features a classic heraldic eagle. The eagle's wingspan covers most of the coin. Later issues in the series like this one feature the inclusion of the motto "In God We Trust" on a banner held in the eagle's beak.

MS65 Green Label

The NGC Green Label venture is an exciting development for collectors. The Green Label is only awarded to coins that prior to being submitted to NGC for grading, the coin was first selected by experts at Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA) along a set of strict guidelines pertaining to strike, luster, eye-appeal, and toning, before then being submitted to NGC for grading. There it received the Mint State 65 grade and was encapsulated. Mint State 65 coins are fantastic examples that have stunning eye appeal, lustrous, original surfaces and vanishingly few distractions.
