United States $5.00 Liberty, Extremely Fine
Small Size Pre-1933 U.S. Gold
The $5.00 Liberty Gold Half Eagle was the workhorse gold denomination in the United States for much of its tenure. It was small enough that individuals could use them in larger transactions. Like all U.S. Gold, these coins circulated more often in the Western U.S., where gold and silver was preferred over paper money. The coins circulated in the East more often than larger gold coins; but primarily, they were held as reserves. Five Dollar Liberties trade at a higher premium than the larger U.S. Gold coins; but that is to be expected as smaller sized coins usually cost more per ounce. These coins are popular among Americans wishing to own pre-1933 dated gold at an inexpensive price.
