$10 Indian Gold Eagle is one of only two coins designed by the acclaimed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The coins were struck from 90% gold and 10% copper to increase the coins durability while in circulation. Each coin contains .48375 troy ounces of pure gold. The Indian Heads were only minted between 1907 and 1933. Many were smelted after 1933 and today those that remain are an essential addition to any collection.
The obverse features Saint-Gaudens' bust of Liberty resplendent in a Native American headdress. Above her are 13 stars representing the original 13 colonies and the mint date below. The reverse shows St. Gaudens' majestic eagle standing upon arrows tied with olive branches. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “E PLURIBUS UNUM” AND “TEN DOLLARS” are inscribed on all Indian Gold Eagles' reverses and those struck after 1908 also have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST”.
Indian Heads, otherwise known as Eagles given their $10 face value, were circulated as legal tender until 1933. Gainesville Coins is offering these coins in AU (almost uncirculated) condition, with the dates chosen at random as availability dictates.
Don't miss this opportunity to add gold coins of genuine historical pedigree to your collection.
