    Liberty $5 Gold Coin (1839-1908)

    For its day, the Liberty $5 Gold coin was a coin with a face value that was extremely large. Back in the day, $5 was a lot of money that had a lot of purchasing power. Nowadays, this coin is popular amongst collectors not only because of its gold content and related value, but also due to it no longer being produced. Being that it was produced for nearly 70 years, there are plenty of these coins on the market, but that will only remain true for a short period of time.

    The Liberty $5 Gold coin is most often found in poor condition and because of that it becomes especially important for collectors to carefully analyze the coin prior to purchase. With all this being said, these coins are incredibly popular regardless of their condition to most every collector.

    What You Will Pay for a Liberty $5 Gold Coin

    The price you are going to be asked to pay for a Liberty $5 gold coin is dependent on a variety of different factors. Really, the prices will vary from dealer to dealer, and from coin to coin. What I mean by this is that while one year’s coin may be worth $300, another year’s coin may be worth 3 times that amount. Factors like scarcity, condition of the coin, and how old the coin is all play into the asking price set forth by a dealer.

    Generally speaking, you should expect to pay no less than $300 for a $5 Liberty. The value of the gold present in the coin sets a baseline price that ensures even the worst preserved coins will sell for three figures. As the condition of the coins improve, the price you are going to be asked to pay will increase. Of course, you should always comparison shop between a handful of dealers to ensure that you are getting a coin at the best price available.

    The Most Sought After Liberty $5 Gold Coins

    Like was touched on previously, there are certain versions of the $5 Liberty that are undeniably more sought after than others. Naturally, these special editions will carry the highest price tags and typically tend to exist in the smallest quantities. It is important you do not become confused, however, because there were up to three different editions of the coin produced each and every year. This means while the 1877S $5 Liberty will go for $300-$1,500, the 1877CC cannot be found for prices under $2,000.

    These coins may seem expensive and truthfully are exactly that, but if you think about the fact that they are no longer being produced it goes without saying that they will only ever become pricier. For this reason, now is the absolute best time to acquire these coins, but especially those that are already extremely rare. This is what so many collectors are trying to do, but the task of acquiring an extremely rare $5 Liberty is something that is much easier said than done.

    The Future Value of Liberty $5 Gold Coins

    $5 Liberty gold coins are quite pricy, especially for new collectors, but it is an undeniable fact that they will only ever become more valuable. Whether it be because of the appreciating value of gold, or the diminishing quantity of coins on the market, the value of these coins will rise over time. This is why we continually tell folks that now is the best time to acquire these coins regardless of their condition. Of course, those well-preserved coins will see their prices spike faster than those that have been poorly preserved, but every single one of these coins is likely to appreciate over time.
