Description:

Do you admire the coins designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens? Then invest in a common date $10 Indian Gold Eagle MS61 and add a coin of great artistry to your collection. President Theodore Roosevelt and sculptor Saint-Gaudens together worked on a range of new coin designs that took their inspiration from the high relief pieces of ancient Greece. You can see it here in the reverse design of the $10 Indian Gold Eagle, in which the majestic-looking eagle is in many ways reminiscent of the Ancient Greek coins of the Ptolemaic Kingdom. However, the bald eagle of the gold $10 coin stands on arrows and an olive sprig, rather than a thunderbolt. The arrow and olive branch are crucial in representing America as a peace-loving nation, but one able and prepared to defend itself.

To the right of the eagle is the phrase E PLURIBUS UNUM, taken from the great seal of the United States, meaning "Out of many, one." The origins of this motto can again be traced right back to ancient Greece and the Philosopher Heraclitus, who wrote "The one is made up of all things, and all things issue from the one." It's a motto that was refashioned and reused in a number of contexts until it finally found its way onto the great seal of the United States. The motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" positioned to the left of the eagle was a slightly later addition to the coin. Added in 1908 at the insistence of Congress, its initial omission had garnered quite a bit of public outrage. Beneath the majestic eagle, we see the face value of TEN DOLLARS.

The obverse design features a profile portrait of Liberty sporting an Indian headdress - a symbol President Theodore Roosevelt was keen to have included on a coin. The obverse design is topped with 13 stars representing the original states of the Union, while the year of issue is shown at the bottom of the design. Your order will be fulfilled by a random year that has a mint state of 61, so you can be assured of its quality. The design of this Gold Eagle is completed with raised stars around the edge of the coin; these too were amended from 46 to 48 stars when in 1912 Arizona and New Mexico joined the United States.

This precious coin is struck from .900 fine gold, composed of 90 percent gold and 10 percent copper, with a weight of 16.7200 grams and a diameter of 27 millimeters. These coins were first minted in 1907 and produced every year until 1916, then struck intermittently until 1933, when Executive Order 1602 meant their production had to cease. Today no one is quite sure how many of these precious coins exist, so a $10 Indian Gold Eagle MS61, from a random year, represents both a piece of history and a steadfast investment. Make it yours today. Collecting these coins can prove a challenge, so augment your collection with a piece from a random year and who knows which year of issue you'll clasp in your hand?
