The Gold $10 Indian Eagle coin was introduced in 1907 as the final design series for the $10 denomination of the US Eagle Series. The coins were regularly struck from 1907 until the eve of the entry of the United States into World War I. Through the 1910s and 1920s, the Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle was sparingly struck and resulted in some of the rarest issues that still survive today. 1916-S Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagles are available to you online at Silver.com.

From 1907 to 1916, the US Mint issued the Gold $10 Indian Eagle on an annual basis. The Philadelphia Mint, Denver Mint, and San Francisco Mint all issued coins during this period, with most date marks featuring coins from all three. However, the outbreak of World War I in Europe changed the mintage of gold coins at the US Mint. The Gold $10 Indian Eagle was last struck by all three mints in 1914. The 1915 issue saw coins struck only at Philadelphia and San Francisco, with 1916 featuring only coins from San Francisco.
All of these 1916-S Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle Coins are available to you in Extremely Fine+, or XF+, condition. This indicates that the coins have light wear on the highest relief points of the design with some traces of mint luster still present. Each coin will arrive in a protective flip.
On the obverse of 1916-S Pre-33 Gold Indian Eagles is an effigy of Lady Liberty. This left-profile portrait shows the feminine face of Liberty wearing a feathered headdress. There are 13 stars arranged in a crescent shape above her head with the 1916 date mark below the portrait.
The reverse side of 1916-S Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagles comes with a depiction 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. The S mint mark from the San Francisco Mint features along the edge of the design field just to the left of the T in TEN DOLLARS.
