Product Description

Introducing the rare and fascinating 1890 Liberty Gold Half Eagles from the Fairmont Collection, now available at BGASC! The 1890s witnessed a captivating journey in the production of these half eagles, starting with modest mintages and gradually growing over the decade. A true gem for collectors, this 1890 edition holds exceptional value due to its remarkably low mintage.


  • Certified and protected inside PCGS slabs!
  • Limited mintage of just 4,240 coins from the Philadelphia Mint!
  • Available from the esteemed Fairmont Collection!
  • Only a limited number of certified coins are available!
  • Contains .242 Troy oz of actual gold content.
  • Backed by the US government with a face value of $5 (USD).
  • Graded AU50 by the Professional Coin Grading Service.
  • Obverse features a captivating depiction of Lady Liberty.
  • Reverse showcases the majestic heraldic eagle.

Each 1890 $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle Coin available at BGASC is in AU50 condition, also known as About Uncirculated. These coins exhibit extremely light signs of friction on the highest relief points, alongside medium or near-full mint luster, making them truly remarkable pieces.


Christian Gobrecht’s skillfully crafted bust of Lady Liberty graces the obverse of these coins. She appears in left-profile relief, wearing a coronet crown with a ring of 13 stars encircling her head, symbolizing the original colonies.


On the reverse, you’ll find the iconic heraldic eagle. Proudly presented in front-facing relief, the American bald eagle carries the US national shield, accompanied by the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace. The banner above its head bears the national motto.


During 1890, the US Mint struck a mere 58,040 Liberty Gold Half Eagles, with Philadelphia and Carson City mints being the primary issuers. Among them, Philadelphia minted just 4,240 coins, making this edition exceedingly rare. As the decade progressed, annual mintages increased, and additional mints, including the New Orleans Mint and San Francisco Mint, joined in by 1892.

The Fairmont Collection refers to a treasure trove of Pre-1933 US gold coins discovered in foreign banks during the 2010s. These coins represent a diverse range of unique dates in American history, with repatriation to the United States commencing in the late 2010s and early 2020s.


Don’t miss the chance to own a piece of history. Contact BGASC with any questions about these remarkable gold coins for sale at 888-992-4272 or reach out through our chat or email services.
