Indian Head Gold Coins are favored among collectors for their unique design and their place in American history. These coins are among the most popular of all gold coins from the United States.
They speak of the art of the time, with the Art Nouveau style apparent in the choice of fonts and letter placement in the design. This grade indicates that the gold coin has minor or little wear from circulation. Above her head is an arc of thirteen stars representing the thirteen original states of the United States.
At the bottom center of the design is the four digit year date. The inscription United States of America is above the eagle along the rim, and the denomination Ten Dollars shows at the bottom of the design. To the right of the eagle is the inscription E Pluribus Unum, which is Latin for, Of Many, One, speaking of the unity of the states. History of Indian Head Gold Coins. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt wrote to the Secretary of the Treasury requesting that our coinage be replaced with designs having more artistic merit.
The current designs were'tired' and needed to be replaced, so Roosevelt sought the assistance of the artistic sculptors of the nation to assist with this endeavor. With much resistance from the Chief Engraver, Charles E.
Roosevelt specified that he wanted the themes to be inherently "American" and the addition of Native American headdresses would be distinctly American, and very picturesque. Saint-Gaudens completed the design for this Indian Head Gold Coin series in mid-1907, and it immediately replaced the Liberty eagle design that had been used since 1838. The reverse design was modified by Chief Engraver Charles E. Barber in 1908 to include the motto In God We Trust to the Eagles left. This was the result of public outcry due to Saint-Gaudens removal of the motto on the request of President Roosevelt.They are scarce and valuable, but are also just available enough to be affordable!
