Two and a Half Dollar Gold Coins were made from 1796 to 1929 with several different types as follows: --- Capped Bust to Right from 1796 to 1807 --- Capped Bust to Left in 1808 --- Capped Head to Left, large diameter from 1821 to 1827 --- Capped Head to Left, reduced diameter from1829 to 1834 --- Classic Head from 1834 to 1839 --- Liberty Head from 1849 to 1907 --- Indian Head from 1908 to 1929.
Lots of rare dates exist with all the early coins, before 1834, bringing thousands of dollars in even well worn conditions. Two and a Half Dollar Gold Coins are an exciting segment of the U.S. Gold market!
An attractive, well struck, borderline uncirculated example of this early Classic Head type.
Classic Head. Very attractive with strong detail.
Script 8. A pleasing high-end XF.
100,546 struck but very few have survived in mint state. PCGS has only graded 14 coins at all levels of mint state with just 2 coins grading higher than this example - 1 @ MS-63 and 1 @ MS-64. This coin is very attractive with satiny yellow-gold luster, a solid strike and strong eye appeal.
Small Date. Sharp detail and lustrous.
Well struck with shimmering yellow-gold luster. Only 23,294 minted and most saw circulation. Only 2 coins have graded finer at NGC.
"Unc. details, improperly cleaned." A very scarce date with just 9,772 minted. Only 9 coins graded mint state at NGC and 5 at PCGS. And some of these are probably the same coins being re-graded or crossed over! With a PCGS or NGC-60 coin having a value of $12,000.+, this very attractive, lightly cleaned, uncirculated '52-C should be an excellent value at our asking price!
A very scarce date with a mintage of just 3,677. This example has nice color with a trace of luster. The obverse is well struck and the reverse is typical for the date with some weakness on the lower half of the eagle. Fewer than 150 graded at PCGS and NGC combined and that number certainly includes duplicate submissions. A rare coin in desirable condition!
Well struck with frosty orange-gold luster and outstanding eye appeal. Much nicer than the typical MS-61.
Well struck and lustrous. Only 16,000 minted.
Lustrous and nearly mint state. Only 18,000 minted with few high grade survivors. Only 8 coins have graded higher at PCGS with a single MS-64 being the finest.
Gleaming orange-gold luster and a bold strike with scattered marks that define the grade. Very scarce with a mere 1,632 coins struck. Just 12 have graded higher than this example at PCGS with an MS-64 coin being the finest.
Frosty mint luster with fewer marks than expected for the grade.
A beautiful survivor from a mintage of just 4,000 coins. This frosty example is extremely well struck and displays intensely lustrous semi proof-like surfaces.
Nice orange-gold luster on deep mirror surfaces. Lightly abraded, but quite nice for the grade. A mere 197 minted!
Flashy proof mirrored field and no wear. Minor contact marks must be the reason NGC didn't grade this higher. An attractive coin at a modest price! Only 144 minted!
Flashy orange-peel luster.
Needle-sharp strike and incredible "mint bloom". The perfect coin for a top quality type set!
Very well struck with flashy gold luster. A nice choice for a top quality type set.
