Indian Head gold coins were circulating coinage of the early 1900’s and are comprised of three major design types. The $20 and the $10 denominations were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, a famous sculptor of the era. The obverse of the $20 depicts Lady Liberty, holding a torch and olive branch, walking away from the capital. The date is shown in the right field. The reverse depicts a soaring eagle with United States of America and Twenty Dollars above. The $10 Indian design is unique, depicting a bust of Lady Liberty adorned with a native American headdress. The reverse depicts a perched eagle grasping arrows and an olive branch, surrounded by the words “United States of America” and the denomination underneath. Both the $5 Indian and $2 1/2 Indian gold coins were designed by Bela Lyon Pratt and feature an Indian Chief with details carved into the surface of the coin, referred to as an “incuse” design. All four denominations have the same design but vary in size and gold content based on their face value.
