1907 2.50 Dollar Gold Liberty Head PCGS MS62
1907 - the Year the 'Old Work Horse' was put out to Pasture
The $2.50 Liberty Head Gold Quarter Eagle was designed by Christian Gobrecht and was first minted in 1840. At that time the United States was expanding westward and California hadn't yet given up its vast cache of gold. For seven decades, this small gold coin fueled the nation's expansion and then its industrialization. By 1907, the last year in the series and the year this example was struck, the United States had settled into its current borders and was well on the way to urbanization. That year, President Theodore Roosevelt decided it was time for the 'Old Work Horse' Liberty Head Quarter Eagle to be put out to pasture. The new Indian Head Quarter Eagle replaced it in 1908. As the last coin in the series, this 1907 example is coveted by collectors, particularly in the uncirculated grade of Mint State-62 (MS62) certified by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Add an example to your collection today. It makes a great individual coin or even better as part of your 12-coin U.S. Mint Gold Type set.
