Gold Half Eagle Coins

The $5 Half Eagle coin was minted for circulation from 1795 to 1929 and included the Turban Head, Draped Bust, Classic Head, Liberty Head, and Indian Head designs. The $5 coin is also the only denomination ever minted at eight United States mints, including Philadelphia, Charlotte, Dahlonega, New Orleans, San Francisco, Carson City, Denver, and West Point. It also has the distinction of being the first gold coin minted by the United States as authorized by the Coinage Act of April 2, 1792. This is another great coin to add to your gold coin type collection.
