  • Description:

    The Certified $5 Gold Liberty 1885-S MS62 NGC is a notable artifact from American numismatic history, reflecting the nation's economic progress during the late 19th century. The $5 Gold Liberty series, introduced in 1839, played a pivotal role in facilitating commerce and trade across the United States, symbolizing the country's financial strength.

    The obverse of the 1885-S Gold Liberty features a captivating depiction of Lady Liberty, adorned with a coronet inscribed with the word "LIBERTY." Thirteen stars encircle her profile, representing the original thirteen colonies. On the reverse, a majestic eagle is depicted with outstretched wings, clutching an olive branch and arrows, symbolizing peace and strength.

    Certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as MS62, this $5 Gold Liberty coin is graded as Mint State 62, indicating uncirculated condition with noticeable marks and abrasions. Coins graded MS62 retain full mint luster with significant distractions, reflecting the challenges of preserving gold coins from that era.

    The 1885-S $5 Gold Liberty was struck at the San Francisco Mint, one of the principal mint facilities responsible for producing circulating coinage during the late 19th century. Established in 1854 to support the California Gold Rush, the San Francisco Mint played a crucial role in meeting the nation's growing demand for coinage.

    The mintage figures for the 1885-S $5 Gold Liberty are recorded as approximately 1.5 million coins, reflecting the significant output of the San Francisco Mint during that year. Despite its relatively high mintage, examples in uncirculated condition, such as this MS62 specimen, are relatively scarce and highly sought after by collectors.

    The Certified $5 Gold Liberty 1885-S MS62 NGC is securely encapsulated in an NGC holder, providing protection and preservation for the coin's condition. This encapsulation also includes a unique certification label confirming the coin's grade and authenticity.

    As a cherished collectible, the 1885-S Gold Liberty appeals to numismatists and investors alike, offering a tangible connection to America's rich numismatic heritage. Its historical significance, combined with its uncirculated condition and limited mintage, make it a prized addition to any discerning collector's portfolio.
