Thanks to a special opportunity purchase, you can add a historic 1856 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 this is the first time we’ve ever been able to feature them!
The 1856 $5 gold pieces offered here, still show some of their original mint luster. Each one has been graded by our experts and certified by PCGS. Of the original 197,990 coins minted, experts estimate that only 400 survive in all grades – and 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 1856. We don’t know when or if we’ll be able to offer this prized issue again!
