The Liberty Head design, or Coronet Head, was created for the Gold US Eagle Series in 1838 by Christian Gobrecht. Mr. Gobrecht was the 3rd Chief Engraver of the United States Mint and redesigned the Liberty effigy of the leading gold coins of the United States just years after his predecessor had unveiled it.

Certain denominations of the Gold US Eagle had received a redesign in 1834 with an older depiction of Lady Liberty known as the Classic Head. Liberty had long, flowing curls in the Classic Head design with similar facial features and a coronet that sat more horizontally across her head. This design was created by William Kneass, the 2nd Chief Engraver of the United States Mint and was only used from 1834 to early 1838.

The obverse of these Pre-33 Gold $5 Liberty Half Eagles features the Liberty Head design from Gobrecht. The left-profile effigy shows much of Liberty’s hair up in a bun at the back of her head with just a few strands of curls running down her neck. The coronet in her hair is set more at a 45-degree angle in this design. There are 13 stars on this face and a date mark.

On the reverse of Pre-33 Gold Liberty Half Eagles is the heraldic eagle. The bald eagle supports the US national shield as it clutches the olive branch of peace and the arrows of war. Coins dated 1838 to 1865 lack a national motto, while coins dated 1866 and later have the national motto on a ribbon banner above the eagle.

These Pre-33 Gold $5 Liberty Half Eagles are available in XF+ condition. Extremely Fine coins have only light wear on the high points of the coin with traces of the mint luster still visible. Please note Silver.com selects your coins at random. We guarantee all coins have a date mark between 1838 and 1899, and that each coin is in XF or slightly better condition. We cannot promise a date mark or exact condition to you in advance. If you buy more than one, you could receive coins with the same dates and conditions or a mixture of both.

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.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

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.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
