Each of these US Minted $5 Gold Liberty Half Eagles has been Authenticated as Genuine & Certified MINT STATE 64 by PCGS, The Professional Coin Grading Service! Each $5 Lib is composed of 90% Gold and contains .2419 Troy Ounces of Pure Gold! Dates will range from 1839-1908.The Liberty Head Half Eagle $5 gold pieces introduced in 1839 shared a design with the new Eagles released the year before and the Quarter Eagles that would arrive the following year, thus continuing the Mint’s long tradition of uniformity among the nation’s coins. Acting Engraver Christian Gobrecht, whose artistic style was heavily influenced by the Neoclassicism of the day, was charged with designing the new gold pieces. The Half Eagles’ obverse, inspired by Benjamin West’s famous painting Omnia Vincit Amor (“Love Conquers All”), depicts a left-facing bust of Liberty, hair knotted in back with hanging curls, wearing a coronet inscribed “Liberty”. The reverse features a very naturalistic American eagle holding arrows and an olive branch in its talons with a shield across its breast. By looking backward to antiquity, Gobrecht’s design offered the American people an aura of stability and assurance in a time of great social and technological change.
