These Indian Head Eagles, also known as the Quarter Eagle gold coin, were struck from 1908 through 1915, then the production was suspended for a decade. Again the coins were struck from 1925 to 1929. Although this was a short-lived series, it has gained popularity among numismatists for its novelty minting process. This coin is distinctive because it has an incused or “sunken” design instead of being raised above the coin’s surface. This is just one of two US Mint coins that share a similar minting process in the entire coinage history, the only other incuse coin is the $5 Gold Half Eagle Indian Head. This is one of the smallest series with just 15 different date and mint combinations. Its rarity, age, and historical significance with a great track record on price performance have made it a sought-after coin by investors and collectors alike.
The obverse of the Quarter Eagle gold coin was created by Bela Lyon Pratt. He rendered a detailed image of a Native American man wearing a headdress. This subject is encircled by the year of mintage, thirteen stars, and the motto “LIBERTY.”
On the reverse, an American bald eagle perches on a bunch of arrows while holding an olive branch in his talons symbolizing preparedness and peace.
