$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-63 1893 $5 Liberty NGC Certified

    A top value in Pre-1933 certified US Gold, this 1893 $5 Liberty is certified by NGC in investment-grade Mint State 63. This is an incredibly beautiful and rare coin, yet today's prices do not reflect this fact. This is a slighly better date in the series with 1.52 million being issued.

  • 1893 $5 Liberty Raw Uncirculated

    The 1893 $5 Liberty Head gold coins are classic pieces of American monetary history and can be acquired today for little more than their gold content, even in mint condition. With a mintage of 1.52 million coins, most of them that exist today are either worn or have been melted down. At today's special price, these mint condition, 100+ year old coins can be acquired for less money per coin than a modern, 1/4 ounce Gold American Eagle. As with all Liberty Head coins, the obverse depicts Lady Liberty and the reverse shows a heraldic eagle. At this price, they are valued at little more than a modern, 1/4 ounce gold American Eagle coin. As time goes on, we have little doubt they will be worth more than a gold eagle they're still minting today. Get them while they're cheap. Call for discounts on larger orders, please. Learn More
