1808 Liberty Bust 2 1/2 Dollar Gold Piece (Plated)
A replica of an original 1808 Liberty Bust Five-Dollar Gold Piece. This was an average piece of currency in America and was used primarily in trade. This coin would have the buying power close to today's $10 bill. On the frontier, this could easily buy you a few acres of land! This coin is die-struck in solid copper, then 14kt gold plated for an affordable authentic appearance. Coin is stamped with a discrete "COPY" mark as per numismatic federal law. Please note that the coin is pictured with a modern quarter for size comparison, which is not included.
