The first United States gold coins were half eagles made in 1795. These appeared two years after the first American copper coins and one year after the first silver coins. These new coins had a face value of five dollars. The Coinage Act of April 2, 1792 authorized the half eagle. The production of the half eagle officially began on July 31, 1795; 744 half eagles were made on that first day. It was to weigh 135 grains and be made of .9167 fine gold. This weight and fineness did not change until the Act of January 18, 1837 when the weight became 129 grains and the fineness became .900.

Capped Bust to Right (1795-1807); Capped Bust to Left (1807-1812); Capped Head to Left (1813-1834); Classic Head, No Motto (1834-1838); Liberty Head (1839-1908); Indian Head (1908-1929).
