Details & Specifications

Designed by Bela Lyon Pratt, the $5 Indian Head Half Eagle Gold Coin replaced Christian Gobrecht's Liberty Head design, which had been in use since 1839. The Indian Head design, also used for the $2.50 Quarter Eagle, is distinct from the rest of US coinage for its unusual incuse style of sinking the details of the coin below the field. Most coins are struck in relief, whereby features are raised above the coin's field. Production of Pratt's Indian Head Half Eagle began in 1908 and ran continuously until 1916, returning briefly for 1929.

The American public was largely unreceptive to coins in incuse. Accordingly, fewer Half Eagles were preserved and collected at the time. Today these coins are beginning to gain traction in the numismatic market. Like other Pre-1933 American gold coins, the Indian Head Half Eagle is made from 90% pure gold. Its contains 0.2418 troy oz AGW (actual gold weight). These common date coins have not been certified by a coin grading service, but are considered to be in generally “AU” (About Uncirculated) condition.

The obverse of the coin depicts a Native American man adorned by an impressive feathered headdress. Across the top rim, the obverse legend "LIBERTY" divides thirteen stars that neatly wrap around the Indian Head. The year-date is inscribed beneath the truncation of the bust. On the reverse, the standing eagle is perched atop a bundle of arrows and an olive branch, facing left. The denomination of "FIVE DOLLARS" is placed along the bottom rim. The larger $10 Indian Head Gold Eagle bears a strikingly similar reverse design, except that the two reverse mottos are transposed on the Half Eagle and Quarter Eagle: “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is to the left of the eagle, and “IN GOD WE TRUST” is to the right.

Buy these Indian Head Half Eagles at Gainesville Coins to add a charming gold specimen to your collection. Dates are of random year and based on available inventory.
