The $10 Liberty Gold Eagle Coin was first produced by the United States Mint in 1838. Its mintage period spanned a little over six decades until it ended 1907, when Theodore Roosevelt ordered its design change. It was one of the few gold coins that were produced prior to the abolition of gold currency in 1933.
The gold content of every $10 Liberty Head Gold Eagle coin is .48375 troy oz. All coins included in this collection have been assigned an MS62 (Mint State 62) grade by either the NGC or the PCGS. Coins with this particular grade have a worn, but acceptable appearance that is only mildly diminished by small scuffs and contact marks. Each Liberty Head Eagle coin has been kept sealed in its original NGC or PCGS certified case.
For the obverse of his coin design, artist Christian Gobrecht turned to Greco-Roman art for his inspiration. His portrait of Lady Liberty demonstrates many of the aesthetics common to classical art, such as her elaborate hairstyle and the inscribed coronet she wears. Encircling her profile is a series of stars accompanied by the coin’s mintage date. The overall composition of the design is similar to those found on ancient pieces of currency.
As the central image of the reverse side, Gobrecht chooses to use the heraldic eagle. This iconic emblem features the majestic bird using its full wingspan to uphold a large shield. In its talons, it clutches an olive branch and a bundle of arrows to symbolize both the peace that the US strives for as well as the measures it must take to protect it. Hovering above the eagle is a banner bearing the words “E PluribusUnum.” However, it should be noted that appearance of the “In God We Trust” motto can vary depending on the coin’s mintage year. Only coins minted after 1866 will display these words.
