This is an extremely sought after coin for its maverick design and its rarity. These coins were first minted in 1908 by the US Mint and were minted irregularly till 1933.

Detailed Information:

It required a flamboyant and magnetic person like President Theodore Roosevelt to change the American Coinage from one that was conventional and boring to the one that was as zestful and beguiling as his own personality. He had commissioned the famous sculptor of the time and his good friend Augustus Saint‐Gaudens to come up with some fresh and modernized designs with great artistic value to grace the American coins. A total of five different denominations were going to get a facelift and they were Double Eagle ($20), Eagle ($10), Half Eagle ($5), Quarter Eagle ($2.5), and the cent.

Gaudens had devised several different versions of Lady Liberty, some in bust versions and some in full body types for the obverse of the coins and for the reverse he had tried experimenting with versions of eagles in flight as well as in standing position.

Initially Gaudens had designed a bust portrait of Lady Liberty for the obverse of $20 Double Eagle which was inspired from a model of the Nike, Greek Goddess of Victory that he had originally wanted to use in his Sherman’s monument at the Central Park in New York City, but had not used it after all. On the reverse he had intended to use a majestic standing eagle similar to the inaugural medal design he had made for Theodore Roosevelt.

However, after much correspondence with the president and upon the president’s suggestion, it was decided that this design be used on $10 Gold Eagle instead of the $20 Double Eagle. The president also suggested to use a headdress for the Liberty instead of the laurel wreath that she was wearing in the initial design. He felt that feather headdress is distinctly American and very picturesque. This lead to the addition of headdress to Lady Liberty which is historically impossible as the Feathered War Bonnet is traditionally worn only by Male Native American Warriors. The motto “LIBERTY” is inscribed on the headband of the war bonnet. 13 stars form a semicircle around the main design and below the design in the date of mintage.

The reverse featured a majestic bald eagle perched on a bunch of arrows and holding an olive branch in its talon to signify America’s preparedness and desire for peace. This design is an inspiration from the coin of Ptolemy I of Egypt which featured a standing eagle and was illustrated in a book that Gaudens had. The coin has inscriptions "United States of America", "E Pluribus Unum," “IN GOD WE TRUST,” and “TEN DOLLARS.”

The coin also featured raised stars on the edge. From 1907 to 1911, there were 46 stars on the edge to honor the 46 states in the union at that time. Two more stars were added to the 46 stars in 1912 to honor Arizona and New Mexico, which were added to the United States. Some of the rarest Indian Head Eagles are the 1907 wire rim with periods, 1907 rounded rim with periods, 1908‐S, 1911‐D, 1913‐S, 1915‐S, 1916‐S, 1920‐S, 1930‐S, and 1933 issues. These coins are extremely scarce.

In 1933 production of Gold Eagles and other denominations came to an end with the passing of the order by President Roosevelt made it illegal to hold possession of gold coins. All of the coins were confiscated from the public and were melted. The coins that are remaining were the ones that escaped confiscation or those that were sent to Europe before 1933. The distinctive design adds an immense artistic value to the coin and its rarity, age, and historical significance makes it a desirable commodity.
