When President Franklin D. Roosevelt ordered the collection of all gold coins in circulation beginning in 1933, he created a rare class of coins, the likes of which American history had never seen. Today, surviving coins are highly sought after for their beauty and design, as much as their extreme rarity. Right now, you can obtain a $5 Indian Gold Half Eagle from Silver.com.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships in a protective plastic case.
  • Consists of .2419 ounces of .900 pure gold.
  • Struck by the US Mint with a face value of $5 (USD).
  • Available in this listing with a Mint State 65 grade.
  • Designed by Bela Lyon Pratt.

The United States rarely produced its circulation currency using gold between 1794 and the 1830s. Early coins were struck with more abundant, wear-resistant precious metals. However, the discovery of gold in the Carolinas and Georgia during the 1830s, and the subsequent California Gold Rush, flooded the Treasury with gold reserves.

Following this influx of gold, the first coin series to be produced by the United States Mint utilizing these new gold resources included the $5 Gold Coins. The original design featured Lady Liberty and ran from 1839 to 1908. In that same year, the newly designed $5 Indian Gold Half Eagle debuted.

On the obverse side of the coin was the incuse design of a Native American chieftain. This unique design featured a recessed design set, unlike other coins that had engraved, raised design features. The reverse side of the coin featured the image of a bald eagle resting on a quiver of arrows.

Each of the coins available in this product listing is in Mint State 65 condition. This grade indicates a coin with a high quality luster for its date and mint. You may notice a few small, scattered contact marks, or two larger marks or blemishes. There may also be patches of hairlines evident on the coin’s surface.

These coins were struck at a variety of US Mint facilities between 1908 and the end of the series in 1929. Among the active mints that contributed to production were the Philadelphia and San Francisco Mint.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.
