About Two and a Half Dollar Coins


There are a number of rare and collectable currency coins that a collector may have but one of the most priced of these collection coins are the US two and a half dollar coins which were first minted and issued in the year 1796. These two and a half dollar coins were also known as Quarter Eagle and were made of gold. These coins were also the first minted currency coins to have the eagle with a shield. On the other side of this gold coin was the Liberty who is shown wearing a conical cap which was also referred to by many as the "turban".

Almost all of the gold coins that were minted in the past centuries didn't survive the test of time solely because the value of gold was more than the value of the coin and hence almost all of the minted gold coins were melted. Very few of these $2.5 gold coins with the Eagle on one side and the Liberty on the other have survived.

After the first mint in 1796 the Eagle gold coins were re-worked on and the main difference between the ones minted in 1796 and the ones in 1834 was that the new ones had a lesser quantity of gold in them. In addition, the design of the new coins in 1834 was also altered, the motto from the top of the coin was taken out and also the turban which was Liberty's cap was also removed. This design was used until 1839 when it was decided to use the motto once again on the head of the coin.

Of all the rare $2.5 coins the one which is considered the rarest are the ones that were made in California in 1848. The reason that these are rare is because all these coins had an imprint of the abbreviation ‘CAL’ on them which referred to California.

In 1908 the $2.5 coins were minted with new designs on them and it was one of the most impressive looking gold coins with an Indian Chief on one side and an Eagle on the other.
