$5 Capped Bust Gold
Issued from 1807-1834, the $5 Capped Bust half eagles represent several design changes and diameter sizes, all with a Liberty bust, facing left with a turban on her head. Collectors of early U.S. gold coins love these series and almost all of the issues are scarce to quite rare. The most famous rarity is the 1822 half eagle of which two are available in private hands.
