The $10 Indian Head Eagle Coin was originally commissioned by Franklin Roosevelt in 1907 as an attempt to improve the coin designs of his era. It featured the stunning artwork of Augustus Saint-Gauden and is considered as one of the most memorable coins in the US Mint’s history. Now, in honor of this remarkable coin, the SilverTowne Mint of Indiana is pleased to present its special edition 1 oz Indian Silver Head Round.
- Contains 1 oz of .999 pure silver.
- Minted at SilverTowne Mint in Indiana.
- Features an Indian Head design by Augustus Saint-Gauden.
Each silver round weighs 1 troy oz and has a fineness of .999. Every round is guaranteed to be delivered in brand new mint condition and encased in in either a protective sleeve or sealed tube of 20 rounds. Please be advised that although this round has the same design as an existing piece of currency, it has no legal tender value.
For this commemorative piece, SilverTowne artists have taken great care to replicate the details of Saint-Gauden’s beautiful design. Gracing the front of the round is his unique image of Lady Liberty, which shows her in a traditional Native American War bonnet. This image of an American icon attired in a tribal headdress was meant to demonstrate the nation’s new willingness to embrace its indigenous heritage. The round also includes the original artwork’s thirteen stars that appeared in an arched formation above Lady Liberty.
On the back is Saint-Gauden’s portrayal of the national bird. It consists of a bald eagle vigilantly perched atop a bundle of arrows with an olive branch clasped between its talons. The image symbolizes the ideal of peace and the government’s duty to protect that ideal by any means. Engraved above the eagle, where the words “United States of America” used to be, are the round’s weight and silver purity. Likewise, the coin’s original denomination, which was stamped on the bottom of the image, has been replaced by SilverTowne’s logo. Omitted from the reverse side entirely are the phrases, “In God We Trust” and “E Pluribus Unum.”
With its striking artwork, this 1 oz SilverTowne Indian Silver Round is sure to become the centerpiece of your collection or investment portfolio.
