<< >>
Description
Produced by the Clark, Gruber & Company's mint, Denver, Colorado. Obverse: Head of Liberty facing left, date below, as on regular federal issues. Reverse: Eagle, denomination below. For its half eagles, Clark, Gruber & Co. abandoned the Pikes Peak motif that it used on its larger coins. The company brought the designs for the five dollar pieces into conscious imitation of regular United States coins.
