The $2.50 Gold Quarter Eagle Coin was designed by the US Mints Chief Engraver at the time, Christian Gobrecht. Looking to keep all circulating coins of the time uniform in their design, Gobrecht used a similar image of Lady Liberty as seen on the Gold Eagle and Half Eagle from previous years. In the obverse image, he used a left facing portrait of Lady Liberty. She is depicted wearing a crown that reads LIBERTY. Encircling Lady Liberty are 13 stars, and directly below her is the minting year for the specific coin.
On the coins reverse side, an eagle is shown at the center. The bird is perched on an olive branch and a bundle of arrows which it clutches in opposing talons. Surrounding the eagle are the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. Directly below the eagle at the center is the legal tender value of 2 D.
