Thanks to a special opportunity purchase, you can add a historic 1853 gold $5 half eagle to your collection! These pre-Civil War gold coins feature the scarcer Type 1 design, without the motto in god we trust (which was added in 1866 just after the Civil War) on the reverse. These historic coins, struck at the Philadelphia Mint more than 165 years ago, are so elusive that we can rarely offer them in our catalogs.
The 1853 $5 gold pieces offered here are in detailed About Uncirculated AU50 condition. Each one has been graded by our experts and certified by PCGS. Only 305,770 were minted, and the estimated number of survivors is 200 in all grades. We expect that our limited supply will sell out quickly. Don’t miss this opportunity to own a scarce “No Motto” Liberty Head $5 gold piece from 1853. We don’t know when or if we’ll be able to offer this prized issue again!
