Description:

It's the coin that straddled America's most formative years, from the Western frontier to the civil war and a nation's growing industrial strength. You could become a part of this coin's intriguing history by securing this $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle MS62 today. These coins were frequently used in their day, so an example with a mint state such as this is certainly one to cherish. The Quarter Eagle was struck with a face value of $2.50, as delineated by the Coinage Act of 1792. Its name derived from the more valuable $10 eagle coin. The $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagles were struck with a weight of 4.18 grams and a diameter of 18 millimeter. They're made out of 90 percent gold and 10 percent copper. Produced between 1840 and 1907, your piece will be from a random year of issue, but always with a mint state of 62, so it will be a valued coin to add to your collection.

The design is the work of Christian Gobrecht, who worked his way up from the position of apprentice to that of Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. Gobrecht initially honed his skills on ornamental clocks, then bank notes, before joining the U.S. Mint as Second Engraver in 1835. Just five years later in 1840, Gobrecht became the Fourth Chief Engraver. Gobrecht's designed several much-loved coins, including various denominations showing Seated Liberty and Liberty Head designs. The obverse design shows a portrait of Lady Liberty, wearing a coronet inscribed with the word LIBERTY. Liberty's hair is held up in a knot at the back embellished with a string of pearls, though some tendrils have escaped, tumbling down her neck. Liberty's portrait is surrounded by 13 stars denoting the original states of the Union, while the year of issue is below the truncation of the portrait.

The reverse side owes much to John Reich's earlier design featuring an eagle. Here, in tribute to the Great Seal of the United States, the Eagle is shown holding an olive branch and arrows, denoting both America's commitment to peace, but military prowess and preparedness. A union shield, with the requisite vertical and horizontal striped, is shown in front of the eagle's breast. The country of origin UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the value of 2 1/2 D together encircle the reverse design, separated by two dots. The design is completed with a reeded edge.

Liberty Gold Quarter Eagles were struck at the Philadelphia, New Orleans, Charlotte, Dahlonega and San Francisco mints. Where a mint mark exists, it's placed just below the eagle on the reverse side, though pieces struck in Philadelphia do not carry a mark. Given its long-running period of production and the various mints that struck the coin, there are over 150 different issues of the Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle to collect. Get your collection off to a rollicking start with this mint state example from a random year.

Secure a $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle MS62 for your collection and cherish one of the most enduring of all U.S coin designs. Make it yours today.
