1 in stock
The 1795 Half Eagle is a legend. The Captain of the Series and a formidable achievement in any grade, let alone in Mint State. The present MS61+ example is just a hair from the next grade up and a phenomenal acquisition for the purveyor of the finest early gold coins.
The 1795 Half Eagle is a first-year production run for the United States Mint for gold coinage. Just 8,707 examples were made and likely many given to important members of society. We know of many astute collectors who collect exclusively only this date. In fact, the Teraska Collection of 1795 Eagles was done entirely by die state and variety.
No other date in American numismatics contributes to more excitement and allure than this, and few opportunities exist to acquire any finer examples.
It’s a conversation piece if there ever was one. A coin struck under President George Washington that represents everything the U.S. Mint and our forefathers had intended our coins to look like.
This is a date that no matter what market we’re in it enjoys considerable demand, especially in high grade. This is an extraordinary example for any world class collection.
