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!
All the early quarter eagles had small mintages with 1807 having the largest at a mere 6,812 coins. This example has lustrous yellow-gold surfaces with a faint hint of green. The detail is very solid and there are just trivial marks. The overall quality and eye appeal is excellent for the grade.
An attractive, well struck, borderline uncirculated example of this early Classic Head type.
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.
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 and lustrous. Only 16,000 minted.
Well struck and very lustrous. 22,000 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.
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!
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.
Superb lustrous surfaces and a great strike. Perfect for a top quality date or type set.
Intense cascading orange-gold luster jumps off this beautiful well struck Gem. The eye appeal is off the charts on this very pleasing $2 1/2 Indian!
Well struck and lustrous with spot-free surfaces.
Only 4 other dates in the series are rarer in Gem than this underrated date and they bring much higher prices. This well detailed example exhibits gorgeous rich gold luster and minimal abrasions. Just 12 coins have graded higher at PCGS than this conservatively graded Gem.
