The Gold Eagle Indian coin is the continuation of the Gold Eagle $10 coin series launched in 1795. This is the third design of Liberty to feature on the $10 gold coin and is arguably the most unique. The initial design was known as the Turban Head image of Liberty and was designed by the first Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, Robert Scot.
The second design of Liberty to feature on the $10 Gold Eagle was the Liberty bust from Christian Gobrecht. This was the longest-running design in the series and featured on the obverse from 1838 until 1907. This Gold Eagle Indian depiction of Liberty came from Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who in the same year designed the iconic image used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle.
On the obverse face of Pre-33 $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins is a left-profile bust of Liberty. This design depicts Liberty wearing the feathered headdress of a Native American tribal member and includes 13 stars above the design and the year of issue below.
The reverse side of $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins features the image of an American bald eagle at rest, standing on a sheaf full of arrows that is encircled by an olive branch. The nation of issue is engraved along the top rocker, the phrase “E Pluribus Unum” above the bird’s back, and the face value as “Ten Dollars” below the sheaf. Coins in 1907 and 1908 featured this exact design, but those issued from late 1908 to 1933 included the national motto “In God We Trust” off the breast of the eagle.
These Pre-33 $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins are available from the PCGS or NGC with a Mint State 62 certification. Coins in MS62 condition have impaired or dull luster, clusters of small marks throughout, and a few large marks in the primary focal areas.
