Historical Background

gold half dollar eagle

The $5 Liberty was the only coin in U.S. history to be produced at all seven federal mints. Prior to 1838, all Half Eagles were struck at the Philadelphia Mint. Like the Quarter Eagle, the design, composition, and weight of the Half Eagle changed many times throughout its production. The original coin, featuring Robert Scot's design, weighed 8.75 grams and had a gold purity of .9167. Beginning in 1837 and until the Half Eagle was discontinued in 1929, it was struck from .900-fine gold.
