This 1799 BD-2 $5 gold U.S. Half Eagle is an extraordinarily rare coin graded Mint State 62 by PCGS, making it highly important.

1799 BD-2 

Featured is the Draped Bust obverse by Robert Scot and the Heraldic Eagle reverse, America's first gold denomination.


Most early Half Eagles show evidence of circulation. This example exhibits sharp detail with no wear, ideal for the MS62 grade.

Of the several thousand 1799 $5 coins believed extant, PCGS has graded just one other at this MS62 level.


Struck during Philadelphia's first true production of $5 gold coins. Few were preserved in such outstanding quality.


In lower grades, 1799 $5 sells for around $5,000-$8,000. As an important condition rarity, this piece is valued at $52,900.


Securely encapsulated by PCGS, the top service for U.S. rare coins. The plastic preserves and protects the coin.
