The $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle was first released in 1839. Its mintage period is the longest of all the Gold Half Eagle Coins, spanning 61 years in total. Because the Liberty Half Eagle was produced prior to 1933, it boasts an impressive composition of .2418 oz of 90.0% pure gold; such exceptional fineness makes it suitable for individuals wishing to make moderate-sized gold investments.
In addition to its compositional value, the Liberty Half Eagle holds the distinction of being the only coin ever produced in all seven of the original US Mints, consequently earning it great popularity among individuals wishing to collect the various privy marks.
The Liberty Gold Half Eagle was the coin series’ third artistic revision, following the Classic Head Half Eagle. Its obverse has been embossed with the design of Christian Gobrecth, the US Mint’s Chief Engraver at the time. Gobrecht’s artwork offers a Greco-Roman interpretation of the previous Lady Liberty image. It depicts Lady Liberty in profile while wearing an inscribed coronet in her elaborate hairstyle. Also incorporated into Gobrecht’s design are the coin’s mintage year and a circular border of thirteen stars.
Proudly stamped across the reverse side of the coin is the image of the Heraldic Eagle, complete with its shield, olive branch and set of arrows. While similar to earlier coin artwork, the Liberty Half Eagle presents a more accurate portrayal of the national bird. Specific details such the intricate engraving of its feather and talons elevate the image from a generic symbol to a real-life embodiment of this country’s ideals. Other elements that were added to new Heraldic Eagle design include the scroll above the eagle’s head and the word “Five” in place of its numerical counterpart in the coin’s denomination.

As part of the claims process at JM Bullion, we require customers to file a police report with local law enforcement and provide documentation of said report to us. If you have not previously filed a police report, we can help provide you with some basic how-to steps. First and foremost, note there are three options available in many jurisdictions:
Step 1: Locate Nearest Department
You should file a police report with the nearest, appropriate law enforcement agency. If you live within city limits, your local police department is the proper authority to file a report with. If you live outside established city limits, the local sheriffs department may have jurisdiction. You can locate the proper department by conducting an online search or calling 311 (information), if that service is available in your area.
Step 2: Provide Detailed Information
Whether you file a report in person, over the phone, or online, make sure that you provide as much detail about the incident as possible. When it involves property loss or damage, make sure to provide relevant financial information as well.
Step 3: Obtain a Copy of the Report
When it comes to filing a claim with JM Bullion, we require a copy of the police report. If you filed a report in person, you can obtain a written copy immediately or get a case number and retrieve a copy of the report when its ready.
When you file a report on the phone or online, make sure to provide contact information such as a telephone number and email address so you can receive a copy of the report.
If you file a report online, you can often print a copy of your report instantly upon submitting the paperwork online. Additionally, you may find that some jurisdictions do not allow you to file a report over the phone. If you need further details on filing a report, you should call your local law enforcement department or 311 for assistance in starting your police report.

If you would like to upgrade your shipping, you may choose one of the other options for a small fee.

Unfortunately, due to the way insurance is applied to an order, everything must ship at the same time (i.e., in-stock items must await shipment until all presale items have arrived).
