United States $10.00 Indian, Extremely Fine
Another Saint Gaudens Triumph
The $10.00 Indian Gold Eagle was another attempt by President Theodore Roosevelt to improve the aesthetic quality of United States coinage. He commissioned Augustus Saint Gaudens, one of America’s most renowned sculptors to design Ten and Twenty Dollar gold coins with a classic emphasis. The Ten Dollar Gold coin featured Miss Liberty wearing an Indian headdress. These coins were well received upon their debut in 1907 and have been very popular with collectors ever since. Like other U.S. Eagles and Double Eagles, the Ten Indians were primarily used as a reserve coin. Many sat in bank vaults for decades and as a result, supplies of these coins are reasonably plentiful today. Prices for Ten Indians are slightly higher than Ten Liberties, but are still very reasonable for such a beautiful and interesting numismatic coin. Currently, Ten Indians can be purchased for a premium of approximately 20% over bullion value. These coins are popular among Americans wishing to own pre-1933 dated gold at an inexpensive price.
