The S.S. Republic has an interesting history serving on both Union and Confederate forces. After the war, being used as transport, the ship was sunk of the south east coast by a hurricane. Recovered in the early 21st century, this coin has incredible eye appeal despite a century and a half on the ocean floor. 

Liberty Head gold coins were struck in a dollar, quarter eagle ($2.50), half eagle ($5), eagle ($10), and double eagle ($20) denominations. Different versions were struck within some of the denominations which further the collectability and investment potential for these coins.

Despite being struck with various versions, the overall design of the Liberty Head coin remains the same. The obverse portrays a left-facing head of Liberty in a Greco-Roman style surrounded by thirteen stars representing the thirteen original states. Featured on the reverse is a heraldic eagle protecting a shield.
