was one of the few buildings left standing
after the great earthquake of 1906.
The San Francisco
Over a century ago in 1906, San Francisco was
devastated by a massive earthquake. On that date the
San Francisco Mint forever ceased production of the historic
Lady Liberty $5 Half Eagle gold piece. It was the end of an era for
the coin that had been made of 90% fine gold with the famous “S”
mintmark since the California Gold Rush. Yet for even those coins that
survived the calamity of the terrible 1906 earthquake, an even worse fate
Reserved from Massive Meltdown in 1934
In 1934, U.S. gold coins were officially recalled by the Federal
Government and melted down into 100-ounce and 400-ounce gold
ingots. An estimated 90% of all the San Francisco Liberty $5 gold
coins were lost forever.
Surviving “S” Mint Liberty gold coins, few and far between, are
increasingly valued by today’s collectors. Now, GovMint.com has
authorized the limited release of 100-year-old, “S” Mint $5 gold Half
Eagles saved from the San Francisco earthquake and subsequent official
U.S. Treasury meltdown. These coins are struck in 90% gold and date
between1866 and 1906 (date is our choice). They are collector quality,
with a numismatic grade of Extremely Fine. During this limited release,
you can get these authentic 100 year old gold coins for as little as $650
each (compare with current advertisements from retail coin dealers of
up to $799 each).
The History of The West In Your Hands
The history of the American West lives on in these glittering gold coins.
The San Francisco Mint was built during the California Gold Rush and
minted gold delivered from the miners. San Francisco and the western
states grew out of the gold and silver strikes and the immigrants who
came from all across the land to build a new future. The images of Miss
Liberty and the American Eagle on each U.S. $5 gold coin symbolize
our nation’s freedom, strength and faith. These precious and enduring
coins are becoming more precious and sought-after with each generation
and are a valuable legacy for you and your loved ones.
