One of the most popular US Gold Coins among Pre-1933 Gold Coins is indeed the Gold Indian Head Coin. These coins are very sought-after pieces of the US coinage due to their rarity and exclusive historical design. The Indian Head 5 dollar gold coin and 2.5 dollar gold coin are the most popular editions of the Indian Head coin. Even though the Indian Head Gold Coin consists of a certain amount of gold content, the coins are considered numismatic because they are no longer produced (years of mintage vary between 1908 and 1929) and are extremely rare to find.

The Indian Head Gold Coin was designed by the famous American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He was commissioned by the President Theodore Roosevelt to design five coins, yet he finished the design for the $10 Eagle and $20 Double Eagle before he untimely passed away in 1907. The only Indian Head coins minted with this design were the $10 Indian Head Gold Coins, which have been minted using the usual relief struck One year later, a president’s friend suggested an incused design because it contained high-relief effects and the U.S. Mint experienced difficulties with the original St. Gaudens design. Thereafter, the Boston sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt significantly contributed to the redesign of the Indian Head Coin, which were produced up until 1929 and then recalled during the Great Depression at President Roosevelt’s order. The obverse side of the $2.5, $3 Indian Princess$5, and $10  Indian Head Gold Coin features the unique incuse design depicting the profile image of a Native American wearing a headdress, as well as the BLP initials and the year of mintage. The reverse side of the coin features the American Bald Eagle holding an olive branch in place in its left talon and standing on arrows. Besides the eagle image, the reverse side of the coin also contains the inscriptions of the face value of the coin and “In God We Trust” words. The value of the Indian Head Gold Coin is determined primarily by their scarcity, unique incuse design, and historical background, but as well as by its metal content of 90% gold and 10% copper.
