Following the Spanish-American War, the United States gained a number of overseas territories with the signing of the Treaty of Paris. The United States took over direct control of Puerto Rico, Guam, and the Philippines. It also gained control of and occupied Cuba. The United States directly occupied Cuba from 1898 to 1902 and later oversaw the island as an official protectorate starting in 1902. During this period, silver and gold coins of the Cuban Peso were struck in the United States by the United States Mint.

The 1916 Gold Cuba Coin available here was not only struck in the United States, but was also designed by US Mint Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber. Chief Engraver Barber held the post from 1879 to his death in 1917 and designed such iconic coins as the Barber Coinage in the dime, quarter, and half-dollar denominations, as well as the Liberty Nickel.
On the obverse of 1916 Gold 10 Peso Cuba Coins is a depiction of Jose Marti. This right-profile bust captures an image of the poet and philosopher who was a vocal supporter of the nationalist cause in Cuba during the late-19th century.
The reverse side of 1916 Gold Cuba Coins comes with an image of the Cuban coat of arms. In this design, a spade shield offers three design fields with different imagery symbolic of the island nation. The upper field, for example, shows the sun setting over the water on the horizon with two points of land coming together at a harbor entrance with a key in the design field.
