Each 1890-CC $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle Coin listed here is an exceptional Mint State 64 grade. Coins with this grade have an average remaining mint luster with a few small contact marks, one or two moderate-to-heavy marks, and one or two patches of hairlines visible.


On the obverse of these 1890-CC $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles, you’ll find a left-profile bust of Liberty wearing a coronet crown, framed by 13 stars, with the 1890 date mark at the bottom.


The reverse of the 1890-CC Liberty Gold Half Eagle Coin features a depiction of the heraldic eagle, including a front-facing eagle supporting the US national shield while holding the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.


The term “Fairmont Collection” refers to a hoard of Pre-33 US Gold Coins that were used in international commerce and remained absent from the United States for more than a century. These specific 1890-CC $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagle Coins were struck by the Carson City Mint in 1890, featuring the CC mint mark on the reverse.

The Carson City Mint issued $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles in 1890 for the first time since 1884. After closing for a few years, the mint resumed production in 1889 before ceasing operations for good in late 1893. The initial mintage of these coins was one of the highest in the history of Carson City’s striking of $5 Liberty Gold Half Eagles.
