The History of the $2.50 Gold Liberty
The first $2.50 Liberty gold coin was authorized by a Congressional act on April 2, 1872. After several design changes throughout history, Christian Golbrecht designed the $2.50 Liberty Head, or quarter eagle, in 1840.
The obverse (front) of the coin is very similar to the $2.50 and $20 Liberty coins featuring Lady Liberty donning a coronet inscribed with the word ‘LIBERTY’. 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies and the date encircle Lady Liberty. The reverse (back) shows a bald eagle with spread wings behind a shield with stars and stripes. The eagle clinches an olive branch and three arrows in his talons. The words ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’, the denomination (2 ½ D.) and the mint mark surround the eagle.
