    Liberty Head $2.5 Gold Coin (1840-1907)

    The Classic Liberty $2.5 Gold Coin, otherwise referred to as the Classic Head Quarter Eagle, is a gold coin that was produced by the U.S. Mint from 1840 to 1907. The coin features the portrait of Liberty on its obverse and an eagle on the reverse. These beautiful gold coins are comprised of 90 percent gold and 10 percent copper. They contain .12094 ounces of gold.

    These coins feature a beautiful yet seemingly simple design. In addition to Liberty and the eagle, the coin also features stars as well as small ridges around the coin’s rim.

    Classic Liberty Head $2.5 Gold-What Dealers Pay

    The premium that dealers and collectors may be willing to pay for a Classic Liberty $2.5 Gold Coin can vary significantly based on the coin’s edition and overall condition. These coins will generally fetch at least $200 a piece. An 1877 in good condition may be traded for about $250. An 1881 in about uncirculated condition may, however, fetch as much as $4393. If you have a $2.5 Gold Piece of a desired mint year or one that seems to be in great physical shape, you may want to consider having it graded by a professional coin grading service.

    Coin grading services, such as PCGS or NGC, will put your coin through a very thorough examination. They will account for any flaws or damage to the coin and will also verify its authenticity and precious metal content. When you have your coin graded, you will likely get a very good assessment of the coin’s condition as well as reasonable market value. This can provide peace of mind, especially if you are looking to sell your coin.

    Classic Liberty Head $2.5 Gold Value is Conditional

    You can get a good idea of how your $2.5 gold piece might potentially be graded by performing a close inspection yourself. A coin has numerous details and images. Pick one to start. For example, on this particular coin, you might decide to focus on the eagle’s olive branch and arrows. If the olive branch and arrows are considerably worn down or eroded, the coin is likely only in good condition. If the olive branch and arrows still have good texture but feel slightly worn down, then the coin may potentially be in fine condition. If the olive branch and arrows appear to be brand new and are crisp and clean with no visible flaws, then the coin may possibly be in extremely fine condition. You will also need to compare all other details of the coin to get an accurate assessment of its condition.

    Value in the Mintmarks

    The mintmark on these coins is just below the eagle’s feathers on the reverse. These coins were minted at different locations, and the minting location may have an effect on the coin’s value to dealers and collectors. “D” is for the Dahlonega Mint. “C” is for Charlotte. “S” is for San Francisco and the rare “O” is for New Orleans.

    Future $2.5 Classic Liberty Head Gold Values

    The $2.5 Classic Liberty is not getting any younger. As these coins age, their values may potentially rise as they may become harder to obtain. Because these coins were only minted for a handful of years, collectors and dealers may seek to obtain them. In addition, the gold content of these coins will also potentially drive their value. If gold rises in value, then there will likely be a corresponding rise in coin values.
