U.S. $2.50 Liberty gold coins are an undervalued segment of today's classic coin market, in our opinion. In near-gem Mint State 64 condition, they're extremely scarce and yet often overlooked in favor of larger-denomination coins. We think they're real sleepers.
Exceptional scarcity, great value
Minted from 1840 to 1907, $2.50 (or Quarter Eagle) Liberty gold coins were produced by the millions but almost all were heavily used as currency or melted down during the Depression. Only 22,131 survivors are known in near-gem Mint State 64 condition (PCGS + NGC, 9/18/2017). Yet they are an excellent value right now. In 1989, during the last rare coin boom, they traded dealer-to-dealer for more than $3,875.
Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements. In our opinion, they're better than bullion for bulk gold buyers.
• Only 22,131 coins survive in certified MS64. This true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of peak demand.
• Dealer-to-dealer high of $3,875 in 1989.* Combines very low prices with excellent upside potential.
• Private, liquid, and secure. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
