Full Description

n XF condition (Extremely Fine), the $2.50 Liberty Gold Quarter Eagle is considered to have very light wear which is noticeable, but is not considered significant.

An interesting piece of American history, the Quarter Eagle was created with the passing of the Coinage Act of 1792. With a denomination of $2.50, the Quarter Eagles purchasing power in 1800 is equivalent to $34.74 today.

The third design in the series, the Liberty Head Quarter Eagle replaced the Classic Head design in 1840 and ran successfully until 1907. Chrisitian Gobrecht, who was Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint from 1840 until his death in 1844, created the classic design.

Obverse

Known as the Coronet Head Quarter Eagle, Lady Liberty is shown in profile facing left, and is crowned with a straight edged coronet inscribed with the word "Liberty."

Reverse

On the Reverse, a traditional representation of a bald eagle is shown. Similar to the Great Seal of the United States, the detailed eagle is shown with a shield at its breast, and clutches an olive branch and bundle of arrows in its talons.
