Any coin that is categorized as a Pre-1933 US gold coin is a truly rare precious metal product. In the 1930s, the federal government began collecting all gold coins in circulation to melt down.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains .2418 oz. of .900 pure gold.
  • Issued by the US Mint with a $5 (USD) face value.
  • Featured Neoclassical designs from Christian Gobrecht.
  • Available in Very Fine condition.
  • Individual coins shipped in plastic flips.

In an effort to provide financial stability for the federal government during the Great Depression, President Franklin Roosevelt ordered the collection of all gold coins in circulation so they could be melted into gold bars. As a result, remaining coins are sought by investors, collectors, and history buffs due to their monetary and historic value.

On the reverse side of each coin is an altogether unique design created by Christian Gobrecht. Influenced by the Omnia Vincit Amor, or Love Conquers All, painting by Benjamin West, Gobrecht created a left-profile bust of Lady Liberty. She wears a crown with the word Liberty atop her head, with 13 stars above her head and the year of minting below.

The obverse side of the coin features the heraldic eagle. In the image, the eagle has its wings spread wide and a shield graces its chest. Clutched in one talon are the arrows of war, while an olive branch of peace is in the other. Engravings on this side include United States of America and the face value.

The United States Mint struck these Pre-1933 $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle coins between 1838 and 1908, using the Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, Carson City, and Denver Mints throughout its production run. Each coin in this listing is available in Very Fine, VF, condition. Coins in VF condition show light to medium signs of wear, but all major features remain sharp and detailed.


‘’I would highly recommend making online purchases from Stout Gold & Silver. I was a little hesitant at first because it was going to be my first time purchasing from them so I gave them a call and they took extra time to walk me through the process. Turns out there was not much to it, I placed the order for check payment, mailed off my check and they sent me an update when my order was being shipped out. All the pieces of silver came exactly as described and were undamaged, they did a very good job packaging the pieces. All and all, I am very satisfied and look forward to placing my next order with them. I hope this is helpful comment for anyone interested in doing business with them.’’

‘’Best Gold and Silver dealer bar none! And the safe storage is both affordable and very secure. This business also has the advantage of being owned run by Tom Stout, who i would trust with just about anything. Admittedly I'm friends with Tom as well as a customer but he really is a man of his word, if he says it, that's the way it's going to happen.’’

‘’Ordered a 1986 Proor Libertad and was very pleased with my purchase! Great price and super fast shipping with no hassle. It even came with the original box and I thought it was just the coin. I work at a coin shop and it’s great to do business with other great coin shops. I highly recommend this shop! Thanks for the amazing coin!’’
