In 1933, and continuing for several years, the federal government began pulling all gold coins out of circulation. Those coins were melted down and turned into gold bars. Surviving coins are extremely rare, and sought after by investors and collectors everywhere. Right now, JM Bullion has Pre-1933 $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle Coins.

The United States Mint produced $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle coins at five of its facilities: Dahlonega, Charlotte, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Philadelphia. Of the five mints, only the coins struck at the Philadelphia Mint lacked a mint mark. The coins in this product listing were struck between 1840 and 1907.
On the reverse side of each coin is the image of a bald eagle. Known as the heraldic eagle, it features a bald eagle with a shield on its chest. It is shown with an olive branch in one talon and arrows in the other. “United States of America” is engraved around it, with the face value represented below as “2 ½ D.”
The obverse side of the coin has the image of Lady Liberty that was featured on numerous gold coins of this era. Featured in a left-profile portrait, she wears a crown with the word “Liberty” engraved within and 13 stars surround her image. The stars are representative of the original American colonies.
Each of the $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagles available in this product listing is in Almost Uncirculated (AU or About Uncirculated) condition. Coins in this condition show small traces of wear on the highest points of the design, but most of its luster is still visible.
