1895 5 Dollar Gold Liberty NGC MS61 w/Motto
1895 $5 Gold Liberty NGC MS61
In 1895, the U.S. economy was in the throes of a Great Depression. That year the U.S. Mint in Philadelphia struck 1,345,855 $5 Gold Liberty coins. Many of these coins were immediately released into circulation, as the U.S. was at that time on the Gold Standard, and only gold coins or gold equivalent paper money were actual legal tender.
Consequently, locating an 1895 $5 Gold Liberty from the Philadelphia Mint in true uncirculated condition is a real find for your collection. This example is certified by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) in Mint State-61 (MS61) condition. Uncirculated coins are graded on a numerical scale from 60 to 70. An MS61 coin shows full mint luster and no evidence of circulation. Many collectors concentrate on such coins to add to their collections as an individual piece, or as part of their 12-piece U.S. Mint Vintage Gold Coin Type set.
This type set is a collection of 12-different gold coins, one each of every design type struck by the mint for circulation between 1849 and 1933. Completing this collection is a rewarding experience, indeed!
