Produced by the United States mint in 1838, this was the second of the $10 Half Eagle Coins. For roughly 69 years it enjoyed circulation. This coin possesses 90.0% purity courtesy of its pre-1933 mintage. That was the year gold currencies ceased production. Needless to say, this makes it an invaluable piece for collectors and investors.
This coin is rated Brilliant Uncirculated (BU).
The designer for this coin is Christian Gobrecht whose rendition of Lady Liberty is done in neoclassical form. Here, in her elaborately styled curls, she wears an inscribed crown and stands in profile. Accompanied by the coin’s vintage year, her profile is bordered by 13 stars. On the obverse side of this coin the proud Heraldic Eagle is stamped. Holding a set of arrows and an olive branch, it sports a massive shield.
