The legendary Liberty eagle holds a special place in American history. Since their coinage in 1839, the Gold liberty eagle was used to run the engine of multiple industries as entrepreneurs nationwide used it to facilitate transactions.

COIN HIGHLIGHTS

  • Ships individually in protective packaging
  • Consisting of 0.1209 oz of 900 Fine Gold
  • Obverse and reverse may vary slightly but maintain a similar design

Although approximately 217,800 were minted, only a fraction of these coins went into circulation, which happened because it was replaced by the St. Gaudens Double Eagle shortly after, in 1907. Most of the coins not put into circulation ended up melting for their gold content following the cessation of the Gold Standard in 1933. The Liberty Head Double Eagle came in three denominations, the ten-dollar piece being the highest, the $5 half-eagle, and the $2.5 quarter-eagle.

As the third modification in the coin's design, the reverse side features thirteen stars, indicative of the thirteen original American colonies. Centred is Morgan T. Stanley's timeless design of Lady Liberty in the image of an American woman, donning a Phrygian cap with "Liberty" across. Finally, from 1876 onward, American double eagles incorporated William Barber's slightly modified edition, with more space allowed for the coin's year of issue.

Held on the obverse side is the quintessential symbol of the United States, the Bald Eagle, with its wings splayed. A bundle of arrows is clutched in the eagle's left talon, while olive branches are clutched in its right talon. A shield bearing the stars and stripes is on the eagle's chest. The coin's country of issue and denominational value all encapsulate this vivid image.
