In 1837, the United States Mint introduced a new Liberty design on the $10 Eagle that would go on to outpace all other designs ever to feature on the denomination. Created by Christian Gobrecht, the Gold Liberty Eagle imagery was used on the coins for nearly 70 years. It was subsequently used on the Quarter Eagle, Half Eagle, and Double Eagle denominations as well as those coins were rolled out by the US Mint.
All of these Pre-33 Gold $10 Liberty Eagle Four-Coin Sets are available to you with plastic flips for each coin. With .48375 Troy ounces of actual gold content in each coin, you will get a total of nearly 2 Troy ounces of gold. The US Mint used 90% gold content in the Gold Liberty Eagle Series, with the remaining alloy consisting of 10% copper. All of these coins are in About Uncirculated condition, indicating only the presence of light-to-trace wear and tear on the highest design points and most of the original mint luster present. Date marks on these coins all pre-date 1900. No four-coin set will come with matching date marks present as all four coins have different dates of issue.
Lady Liberty features on the obverse of these Pre-33 Gold $10 Eagles. Designed by Gobrecht, the 3rd Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, the left-profile effigy of Liberty found here has most of her hair back in a bun, a coronet crown in her hair, and a few curls running down the side of her head. This field includes the date mark at the bottom and 13 stars around the design element.
A 19th-century version of the heraldic eagle of the United States is present on the reverse of Pre-33 Gold $10 Eagle Coins. The design features a bald eagle in front-facing relief looking to the left. The bird uses its talons to clutch the olive branch of peace and the arrows of war, with a small US national shield on its chest. Coins dated 1838 to 1865 lack the national motto of “In God We Trust.” The coins dated 1866-1900 in this set have a banner above the eagle with the national motto.
