The Gold Eagle Indian coin is the popular predecessor to the Liberty Gold Eagles which were issued from 1838 to 1907. The Gold Eagle Indian design is unique compared to the Turban Head or Liberty designs because it attempted to blend Lady Liberty’s appearance with the feathered headdress of a Native American.

Gold Eagle coins from the United States Mint debuted in 1795 with the Turban Head, or Capped Bust, design of Liberty. This was used through 1804. When the coin series resumed in the 1830s as the US was flush with gold from discoveries in Georgia and South Carolina, the program featured Christian Gobrecht’s Lady Liberty design. This carried on from 1838 to 1907.
All Pre-1933 $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins in this listing are available in Mint State 63 condition. Coins with this certification showcase slightly impaired luster with numerous small contact marks. It is possible the coins will also feature a few scattered heavy marks and small hairlines visible without magnification.
On the obverse of Pre-33 $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins is a bust of Liberty. In this distinct design, Liberty is featured in left-profile relief with a feathered headdress on her head. Above her head are 13 stars and below her bust is the date mark for the coin.
The reverse face of $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins includes an American bald eagle at rest with its wings at its side. The bird stands on a quiver full of arrows that is wrapped in an olive branch. Engravings include the nation of issue and the face value as “Ten Dollars.” Coins in this design series issued in 1907 and early 1908 have no national motto. The reverse of all coins issued from 1908 until 1933 have the national motto “In God We Trust” in front of the bird’s breast.
Pre-33 $10 Gold Eagle Indian Coins were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the man who designed the famed Liberty image on the $20 Gold Double Eagle. This Gold Eagle Indian image featured regularly on the $10 Gold Eagle from 1907 to 1916 and was struck sporadically following the end of World War I and 1933.
