$10 Indian Head Gold

$10 Indian Head Gold

The $10 Indian head coin, regarded by numismatists and dealers as one of the most exquisite coins ever to be minted by the United States Mint, is one of two coins designed by America's celebrated sculptor, Augustus Saint-Gaudens; the other being the $20 Saint-Gaudens.

The $10 Indian Head face shows the head of Liberty, displaying an Indian war plumage which reads LIBERTY. The nation's thirteen original colonies, represented by thirteen stars, form an arch above Liberty's head. On the bottom of this side of the coin is the date.

On the obverse, a Bald Eagle sits among olive branches. The Latin phrase E PLURIBUS UNUM is inscribed to the side. The words UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and the $10 denomination appear at the top and bottom of the coin, respectively. As with the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, in 1908, by order of Congress, the motto IN GOD WE TRUST was added after having been omitted originally.

On the edge of the coin, raised stars signifying the states of the Union can be seen. In the period 1907 to 1911, 46 stars were included. In 1912, to commemorate the addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the Union, a further two stars were added.

In 1907, for a short period, 500 $10 Indian Heads were minted with a wire rim, producing a three dimensional appearance.
