About Liberty Head Half Eagles

As one of only two coins to have been produced concurrently at five different mints within the same year, the Liberty Head Half Eagle was a familiar item among contemporary American citizens and a favorite to produce. The coin first saw the light of day in 1839 and would be minted every year for the next sixty-nine years. It is also the one type to have been struck by seven different facilities.

Christian Gobrecht, the artist behind the cherished silver Seated Liberty coinage, was responsible for this long-running design. Similar to previous designs, the profile of Liberty continues facing left and now wears a coronet with her name inscribed. Surrounding her head are thirteen stars to symbolize the original colonies. On the reverse, an eagle spreads its wings and a Union shield covers its chest. The nation’s name encircles the bird and by 1843 the font-size was increased. For the first time in the denomination’s history, its value was spelled out as “FIVE D.”
