The $10 Gold Eagle Coin from the United States Mint was introduced in 1795 and available intermittently until the 1830s. From 1838 onward, this gold coin was available each year in the $10 denomination through 1916 before it was eventually halted for good in 1933. The design was created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and has been reproduced countless times on various collectible pieces.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens was chosen by President Theodore Roosevelt personally to create new designs for American coinage in the early 20th century. President Roosevelt approached Saint-Gaudens in 1905 about new designs and his works were eventually accepted for two different coins. The most memorable is that of Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle, but there was also another.
The $10 Gold Eagle coin features what many consider to be among the most unique depictions of Lady Liberty. Saint-Gaudens’ design for the $10 Gold Eagle is remembered as the Indian Gold Eagle, but it is really a depiction of Lady Liberty wearing a feathered headdress on her head in a left-profile portrait.
On the obverse of the 2 oz Silver Indian Round, you’ll find the design of Lady Liberty in left-profile relief that Saint-Gaudens created in 1907 for the $10 Gold Eagle. This image includes 13 stars and the word “Liberty.” It originally featured on the $10 coin through 1916, with intermittent striking of the denomination through 1933.
The reverse side of the Silver Indian Round in this listing includes Saint-Gaudens’ design of the eagle. The American bald eagle in this design features the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in different poses than typically found. The eagle is at rest on a sheaf of arrows wrapped in an olive branch. The design originally did not include the national motto of “In God We Trust,” but it was added in 1908 and features on these silver rounds.
