In 1907, the US Mint began to transition away from its long-running Liberty Coronet design on the denominations of the Gold US Eagle Series. The circulation coins got three different designs across the four denominations starting in 1907, with the Gold $10 Indian Eagle getting an effigy of Liberty wearing a feathered headdress. While 1907 featured both designs, old and new, the 1908 release was unique in its own way as well. Early coins struck in 1908 lacked the national motto, a feature added to the reverse later in 1908.
All of these 1908-D Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagles are offered with individual plastic flips and come in Extremely Fine+ condition. A coin in this condition has only light wear present on the highest relief points, with traces of the mint luster still present.
The coins in this listing are among the rarest remaining 1908 Gold $10 Indian Eagles. A total of 1,046,500 1908 Gold $10 Indian Eagles were struck by the Denver Mint, but only 210,000 of those coins were 1908-D Pre-33 Gold Indian Eagles with No Motto present on the reverse of the coins.
On the obverse side of 1908-D Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagles is a depiction of Liberty wearing a feathered headdress. This design came from Augustus Saint-Gaudens and features Liberty in left-profile relief with 13 stars over her head and a date mark below.
The reverse field of 1908-D Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle Coins comes with a vision of the American bald eagle. In this design, the bald eagle is at rest on a sheaf of arrows. The sheaf is wrapped in an olive branch and the eagle has its wings at its side.
