Quarter Eagle ($2.50)


The quarter eagle is a coin that was issued by the United States Treasury with a denomination of two dollars and fifty cents. Its name was established in the Coinage Act of 1792,  and it derived from the US ten-dollar gold eagle coin.

Designed by Christian Gobrecht in 1840, the Liberty Quarter eagle holds the distinction of keeping the same design for the longest time in American history: thirty-three years. The famous design of the Saint-Gaudens eagle is actually only a modification of the original by Gobrecht featured on this coin. The obverse features the bust of Miss Liberty wearing a coronet inscribed with "Liberty", facing to the the left. She is also surrounded by thirteen stars The reverse design features a bald eagle in flight clutching an olive branch and arrows. It has a shield emblazoned on its chest and is surrounded by "The United States Of America." This coin was graded Mint State 64.

There have been several designs over the years such as; Turban Head (1796–1807), Draped Bust (1808), Capped Head (1821–1834), Classic Head (1834–1839), Liberty Head (Coronet) (1840–1907), and Indian Head (1908–1915, 1925–1929).

Designed by Robert Scot, the quarter eagle was struck mainly in Philadelphia and branch mints in Charlotte (1838-1859 not inclusive), New Orleans (1838-1857 only), Dahlonega (1839-1859) and in later years, San Francisco (1854-1879) and Denver (1911-1925).

As fewer coins were struck prior to 1834, all of the early issues range in classification from scarce to rare. The first issues were struck in 1796. Any proof date prior to 1856 is very rare and will command a high price in any condition. Although the last date of issue was 1929, the quarter eagle was officially discontinued in 1933 with the removal of the United States from the Gold Standard.
