Looking to buy the $10 Gold Indian Head in San Diego?
The $10 Indian Head Gold Coin was not designed by Pratt, but instead by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This $10 gold coin is among the most beautiful gold coins the nation has ever struck.
The $10 Indian Head’s obverse (front) features the Liberty’s head, who dons an Indian war bonnet that reads ‘LIBERTY’. Thirteen stars, representing the nation’s 13 original colonies arc above Liberty’s head. The date appears at the bottom of the coin.
The reverse side of the coin shows a proud Bald Eagle with a puffed chest, standing among olive branches. The Latin phrase ‘E PLURIBUS UNUM’ lies to the viewer’s right of the eagle. The words ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ and the denomination (“TEN DOLLARS”) appears at the top and bottom of the coin. The motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” was put on the coin in the middle of 1908 by order of Congress.
The coins edge shows raised stars for the states of the Union, and not a lettered or reeded edge. Coins struck from 1907 to 1911 feature 46 stars. Two more stars were added the following year to commemorate the addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the Union. Originally, the $10 Indian was struck with a wire rim in 1907, which gave the coin a more 3-D appearance than others. 500 of these were produced before the Mint began producing regular strikes later in the same year.
