What were the differences between the United States of 1838 and the country as it was in 1907? There are, of course, far too many differences to list in full; however, we can help you to develop an idea of many of them. It was through 1838 to 1907 that the Liberty Gold Eagle was yearly produced. Yes, that tenure of mintage truly spanned close to 70 years. The Iowa Territory, which had portions of modern North Dakota, South Dakota, and Minnesota, was created in 1838. That year, Duke University was also established; back then, it was known as the Brown School in North Carolina.
So, what was the U.S. of 1907 like? It was led by one of history's most acclaimed U.S. presidents, Theodore Roosevelt. That this Liberty Gold Eagle coin design survived almost completely intact through that whole period should inspire awe. That design can be yours to enjoy close-up once a Liberty Gold Eagle has come into your possession. That can genuinely happen if you order, with our staff here at the U.S. Gold Bureau, a Liberty Gold Eagle at a time when we have this coin in enough stock.
However, what should you expect on this coin if you make a fruitful order for it via the online listing here? Our mention of "common date" indicates that, whatever date is on the coin you receive, it won't be a year that is difficult to come by on Liberty Gold Eagle coins in general. Still, the XF reference might arouse your curiosity. On this website, we list many coins alongside grades, of which XF is just one example. XF means Extremely Fine, the grade applicable if a numismatic piece picks up 40 as a Sheldon Coin Grading Scale numeric score.
A coin graded this will have undoubted sharpness. Nonetheless, the piece's highest points will show light wear, while there could be mint luster traces. The generally good condition of a Liberty Gold Eagle means that having it in a public display, like at a museum, could be palatable. You might alternatively be eager to view the coin's appearance in a private setting, like your home. Either option is open to keen numismatists and collectors. The coin could be powerfully attractive to investors, too - owing largely to the gold's 258-grain mass, which could be cited in grams as 16.7 and Troy ounces as 0.48375. That gold is a precious metal capable of maintaining its value more effectively than legal tender money in coins and notes could.
You probably remember occasions on which economic or political problems have slashed the U.S. currency's value. The worth of gold would not be hit in such a way were these problems to re-emerge. Hence, keeping gold can help you in ensuring that you keep your wealth as well.
