2 1/2 Dollar Gold Quarter Eagles 1796 to 1929

The eagle was a base-unit of denomination issued only for gold coinage by the United States Mint. The eagle was the largest of the four main decimal base-units of denomination used for circulating coinage in the United States. These four main base-units of denomination were the cent, the dime, the dollar, and the eagle. The eagle base-unit of denomination served as the basis of the gold quarter-eagle, the gold half-eagle, the eagle, and the double-eagle coins. The one dollar and three dollar gold coins are part of the Dollar base unit.

The Quarter Eagle Gold 2 1/2 Dollar coin was minted from 1796 to 1929.

The first quarter eagle, the 1796 Draped Bust or Capped Bust was designed by Chief Engraver Robert Scot. The obverse depicts Miss Liberty facing right, wearing a cap, with the inscription LIBERTY above, and the date below. The reverse features a eagle behind Scot’s adaptation of the Great Seal of the United States with clouds arcing from wing to wing, enclosing stars, with the inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA around the edge. Production in eight years between 1796 and 1807 totaled only 19,487 coins.

The new Capped Head Quarter Eagle 2 1/2 Gold Dollar coin was also designed by Chief Engraver Robert Scot. This coin was produced from 1921 to 1834. Scot’s thick-necked Liberty on the new 1821 quarter eagle wears a headdress typically worn by women around the turn of the 19th century. Thirteen widely spaced stars surround the bust, with the date below. An eagle with outstretched wings graces the reverse, and the motto, E PLURIBUS UNUM appears above. Both are surrounded by the legend UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and 2 D. From 1821 through 1834, 42,065 Capped Head quarter eagles were made.
