1906-D & 1907-P $5 Gold Liberty 2-Coin Set PCGS MS64+ Rive d’Or
Vintage Gold Liberties From the Rive d’Or Collection
The United States was proudly basking in its new role as a world power in the early 1900s. The West was won, and the continent was settled from coast to coast. Homesteading and barbed wire brought an end to the open range, and 193,000 miles of track had been laid enabling transcontinental rail lines to span the nation from the Atlantic to the Pacific. This era was one of the most exciting times in American history – and now you can own a small piece of that period when you secure this enticing $5 Gold Liberty set from the Rive d’Or Collection – a hoard of vintage U.S. gold coins that escaped the melting pots overseas.
These coins come minted in highly pure 90% fine American gold and feature the bust of Liberty facing left, while the reverse features a spread eagle holding an olive branch and arrows. Struck early in the 20th Century, this two-coin set features a 1906-D Liberty struck the very first year the Denver Mint began producing coins, and a 1907-P Liberty – one of the last Liberty Half Eagles struck by the U.S. Mint.
Each has also been graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in Choice Uncirculated Mint State-64+ (MS64+) condition. Who knows what adventures they experienced before, during and after World War I? What we do know for sure is that they found their way across the Atlantic Ocean where they were ultimately discovered in the Rive d’Or Hoard – a significant piece of history which may have just saved these coins from the melting pots!
The Rive d’Or Hoard – which literally means “The Bank of Gold Hoard” – was a collection of gold coins discovered in a Paris bank vault after World War II. The collection had been carefully amassed over decades and time and time again saw Europe ravaged by war and economic hard times. Evidently the people who had assembled the hoard had learned the hard way that keeping a stash of gold was a tremendous insurance policy against war and ruin. Adding American gold coins to this hoard proved to be no problem since during the 1800s and early 1900s U.S. gold coins were often sent to Europe as part of large business transactions.
So, while vintage U.S. gold was being worn down in commerce and/or melted in America, these coins survived for more than a century locked in a vault in Europe where it had been pieced together by a collector seeking financial security. When the treasures of the Rive d’Or Hoard were finally released in 2008, it contained many gold coins from the United States that were acquired before, during and after WWII as well as many other world coins from the 19th and 20th centuries.
These coins are some of the lucky few to have survived the melting pots, and each is a historic piece of U.S. history for you to hold in your hands. Just one 2-coin set has been assembled. Hurry and secure it now before someone beats you to it!
