U.S. $5 Liberty gold coins are a superb way to buy gold. In gem-quality Mint State 65 condition they are extremely scarce yet often overlooked in favor of classic gold coins of larger denomination. We think they're real sleepers.
Extreme scarcity, great value
Minted from 1866 to 1908, $5 Liberty coins (with motto) were produced by the millions but almost all were heavily used as currency. From an original mintage of more than 51 million, only 5,712 survivors are known in gem-quality Mint State 65 condition (PCGS + NGC, 9/18/2017), which is only one-fifth of the population of near-gem MS64 $5 Liberty gold coins. Yet they're trading for little more than twice the price, making them a great value right.
During periods of peak demand, $5 Liberty gold coins in MS65 have rocketed in price because of their exceptional scarcity and collector interest. In 1989, during the last rare coin boom, they traded dealer-to-dealer for more than $15,600.
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 5,712 coins survive in certified MS65. This true scarcity can mean higher premiums during periods of increased demand.
• Dealer-to-dealer high of $15,600 in 1989.* Combines very low prices with large upside potential.
• Private, liquid, and secure. Unlike most forms of gold bullion, they are exempt from broker reporting requirements.
