The Liberty Head Quarter Eagle, also known as a Coronet, was minted from 1840 to 1907 without any major changes. Some of the most sought-after coins of this series are the 1841, the 1863, and the ultra-rare 1854-S and 1875. The face of the coin depicts Lady Liberty surrounded by 13 stars, which represent the original 13 U.S. colonies. The 1848 CAL. quarter eagle was produced at the Philadelphia Mint from one of the earliest shipments from the California Gold Rush. Fewer than 300 specimens of this first official U.S. commemorative coin survive today. In 2006, an 1878 specimen sold at auction for $1,500.
