Over 1.2 million Liberty Head $5 gold pieces were coined at the San Francisco Mint in 1885 and bear the distinctive "S" mint mark. Gold and silver coins saw their greatest use and popularity in the American West, as few westerners of the 1800s trusted paper currency! These 1885-S $5 gold coins were precious pocket change for cowboys, railroad workers, merchants and other western entrepreneurs. Today they are prized collectibles!
