$5 Gold Coins

The first $5 gold coins, also referred to as “Half-Eagles”, were struck in 1839. There are two main series of $5 gold coins. The first is the Liberty Head Series, struck from 1839-1908. The second series, called the $5 Indians, were issued from 1908 until 1929 and issued with a unique “incuse” design with the details carved into the surfaces of the coin. Containing just under an ounce (.2418 ounces) of pure gold, these coins are highly popular with collectors and investors today. All coins listed in this section have been graded and certified by PCGS or NGC, the top two grading services in the business. Questions? Just give us a call and we will be happy to help.

  • MS - 66 1881-S $5 Liberty Head Gold NGC

    This breathtaking half eagle from 1881 San Francisco is an absolute stunner when viewed in person with amazing luster and pristine fields and detail. Mintage this year was 969K, however, very few have survived in gem, much less in this lofty Mint State 66 grade. Today, NGC and PCGS combined have seen only ONE that is in a higher grade than the present example. This is a definite sleeper in the series, and accurately graded coins are in high demand from collectors around the world. If you're looking for a memorable and important superb gem gold coin to put away for a while, we highly advise taking a look at this dark-orange beauty. Learn More
