The Pre-33 $10 Indian Eagle coins from the US Eagle gold denomination was available between 1907 and 1933 from the United States Mint. However, unlike previous design series in this collection, the Gold Indian Eagle faced the strains of economic uncertainty in the 1910s, World War I, the Roaring Twenties, and eventually, the Great Depression. While millions of the coins were lost to gold melts in the 1930s, rare specimens survive that capture the imagination of collectors.

In the case of each one of the three coins in this Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle 3-Coin Rare Date Set, several factors play into the scarcity of these coins. A combination of age, heavy circulation, suspended coining during World War I, hoarding in America and Europe during and after World War I, and government melting of gold coins in the 1930s contributed to the rarity of Pre-33 Gold Indian Eagle Coins.
Each coin available here does have its own unique backstory though. The 1908-D No Motto was one of the last Gold $10 Indian Eagle strikes to lack the national motto IN GOD WE TRUST. The 1910-S coin had a massive mintage by the standards of the era, but less than half of 1% of that mintage survives today. The 1914-D had a modest mintage, but as it was issued at the outset of World War I, many coins were heavily circulated in the US and poorly stored in mint bags in Europe, where the coins had been sent as foreign payments to the Allies during the war. In both cases, 1914-D coins ended up with a large percentage of the original issue lacking good visuals due to poor handling and storage.
The obverse of Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagles in the 3-Coin Rare Date Set features Lady Liberty. She is featured in left-profile relief wearing a feathered headdress. On the reverse of the coins in the Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle 3-Coin Rare Date Set, you will find the bald eagle. It is shown perched on a sheaf of arrows with an olive branch around the sheaf.
These Pre-33 Gold $10 Indian Eagle 3-Coin Rare Date Sets come with coins in Extremely Fine+ condition. This indicates the coins have only light wear and tear on the highest reliefs of the design, while also possessing some traces of the original mint luster. Each coin is housed in a plastic flip.
