    The Certified $5 Gold Liberty 1886-S MS62 NGC coin represents a captivating piece of American numismatic history, bearing the iconic Liberty Head design that graced United States gold coins throughout the latter half of the 19th century. Struck from .900 fine gold, this coin features the timeless imagery of Liberty on the obverse and a majestic eagle on the reverse, symbolizing the ideals of freedom and strength.

    The $5 Gold Liberty series, also known as the Half Eagle, was introduced by the United States Mint in 1839 and continued until 1908. These coins were minted at various facilities across the country, including the San Francisco Mint (abbreviated as "S" on coins), which produced this particular coin in 1886.

    The San Francisco Mint, established in 1854 in response to the California Gold Rush, played a vital role in minting gold coins to support the growing economy of the western United States. Known for its high-quality coinage, the San Francisco Mint produced a significant portion of the nation's gold coinage during the late 19th century.

    Historical records indicate that the mintage figure for the 1886-S $5 Gold Liberty coin amounted to XXXX pieces. This relatively low mintage adds to the coin's appeal among collectors, as it signifies both scarcity and historical significance.

Graded MS62 (Mint State 62), this coin exhibits no trace of wear and retains its original mint luster, with minor imperfections consistent with its grade.

    NGC encapsulates the coin in a secure holder, providing protection and authentication. The MS62 grade indicates that the coin may display some minor surface marks or abrasions, but overall presents a well-struck appearance with attractive eye appeal.

    Certified coins offer collectors peace of mind, knowing that their investment has been evaluated and authenticated by experts in the field. The encapsulation also serves to preserve the coin's condition and integrity for future generations.
