$2.50 Liberty

Beginning in 1834, the Mint began a search for a suitable design that could serve as an enduring symbol of American gold coins. In that year Engraver William Kneass executed a head of Liberty for quarter eagles and half eagles that became known as the Classic design. Christian Gobrecht's Coronet design was used on the Quarter Eagle in 1840 until the Indian Head design was introduced in 1908.
