Buying gold issued in the 20th century is becoming an increasing challenge for collectors. US circulation gold coins were rounded up by the government following the end of the gold standard in 1933 and melted down to make gold bullion ingots for the US Treasury. Those specimens that survive are typically in well-worn condition. However, there are a small number of Mint State condition coins from programs such as the US Eagle Series that are still available today. Now, 1926 Gold $10 Indian Eagles with Mint State certifications are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

Production of the coins in the US Eagle Series was far more stable in the 19th century than in the 20th. When it comes to the Gold $10 Eagle, the US Mint issued the coins from 1795 to 1916. World War I resulted in the end or a halt to many gold coin programs around the world. For the $10 Indian Eagle, production was intermittent in the years from 1917 to 1933.
In fact, in the 1920s, the Philadelphia Mint only struck the coins one time. In 1926, the Philadelphia Mint issued roughly one million of the Gold $10 Indian Eagles in 1926 as the only 1920s-era issue from the mint. There are only an estimated 10% of those coins still around today for collectors.
The obverse of 1926 $10 Indian Eagles comes with a depiction of Liberty in left-profile relief. Augustus Saint-Gaudens created this unique depiction of Liberty wearing a feathered headdress specifically for the Gold $10 Eagle.
On the reverse face of 1926 Gold Indian Eagles is a vision of the American bald eagle. This depiction of the eagle captures the mighty bird at rest. It is perched on a sheaf of arrows with its wings resting at its sides and an olive branch entwined around the sheaf.
These 1926 Gold $10 Indian Eagles are available in Mint State 63 condition. Coins with this grade showcase only a slight impairment of the mint luster. Numerous small contact marks and a few heavier marks can be found scattered throughout the field of the coin. You may also notice small hairlines without the aid of magnification. Please note we select coins at random after your payment clears and, as such, cannot guarantee whether you receive a PCGS or NGC label. If you buy multiples, you could get all coins with PCGS labels, all coins with NGC labels, or a mixture of both.
