After 1916, the United States Mint struck fresh Gold $10 Indian Eagles five times. Only two of these strikes took place during the Roaring Twenties. In 1920, the San Francisco Mint issued the coins. In 1926, the Philadelphia Mint issued roughly one million coins. It is believed that only 10% of that original 1926 mintage remains, making Mint State specimens low in total volume among the remaining 10% of the original release.
The obverse side of 1926 Gold Indian Eagles comes with a depiction of Lady Liberty. This left-profile portrait of her figure was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and shows Liberty with a feathered headdress upon her head. The design field includes 13 stars and a date mark.
On the reverse field of 1926 Gold $10 Indian Eagles is an image of the American bald eagle. This design also comes from Saint-Gaudens and depicts the bald eagle at rest. With its wings at its sides, the eagle rests on a sheaf of arrows that is wrapped in an olive branch.
