Designed in 1838 by 3rd Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Christian Gobrecht, the Liberty Head design in the US Eagle Gold Series was the longest-running portrait of Liberty to feature on American coins in the Pre-33 gold era. With the coins issued from 1795 to 1929 in the $5 Half Eagle denomination, the 70-year run of the Liberty Head effigy was unmatched. Right now, you can buy Pre-33 $5 Liberty half Eagle Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.

Lady Liberty features on the obverse of Pre-33 $5 Liberty Half Eagle Gold Coins. This design was used from 1838 to 1908 on the $5 Half Eagle Gold Coin. It depicts Liberty in left-profile relief with a ring of 13 stars around her head and a date mark below the portrait.


The heraldic eagle of the United States is present on the reverse side of the Pre-33 $5 Liberty Half Eagle Gold Coin. The bald eagle supports the US national shield on its chest while clutching the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace with its talons. All coins have United States of America and Five D. inscribed on the reverse. Coins dated 1866 and later have a banner above the bird with In God We Trust inscribed.


The $5 Liberty Half Eagle Gold Coin is the only design and denomination of the coin ever struck by all seven US Mint branch locations. The coins were produced over 70 years by Charlotte, Dahlonega, Philadelphia, New Orleans, Denver, Carson City, and San Francisco.
