One of the smaller denominations in the US Eagle Series was the $5 Half Eagle. This collection went through several iterations, with Bela Lyon Pratts Indian Head design the final one used in the collection. The famous Indian Half Eagle was the first-ever incuse strike from the US Mint. Today, you have the chance to buy certified 1909-D $5 Indian Half Eagle Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
The design on the $5 Indian Half Eagle Gold Coin was Americas first-ever incuse strike. Traditionally, coins are stamped with a design that is on the surface of the coin in 3D relief. An incuse strike stamps the design element into the surface of the coin, leaving a flat surface overall.
On the obverse side of the 1909 $5 Indian Half Eagle Gold Coin, you will find the left-profile portrait of an indigenous figure. This design was created in 1908 by Bela Lyon Pratt and depicts a stoic figure in left-profile relief wearing a feathered headdress. This design field includes a ring of 13 stars, as well as inscriptions of LIBERTY and 1909.
The reverse field of 1909-D Indian Half Eagle Gold Coins comes with an image of the American bald eagle. In this design, the eagle is set in left-profile relief as it is perched at rest on a sheaf of arrows. The eagles wings are at its sides as it clutches the sheaf of arrows wrapped in an olive branch. Inscriptions on this side read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and FIVE DOLLARS.
The Indian Half Eagle Gold Coin was issued by several branches of the US Mint in 1909. These Denver Mint coins represent the largest portion of the mintage at more than 3.4 million coins, while the New Orleans Mint issued the fewest with just 34,200 coins.
These 1909-D $5 Indian Half Eagle Gold Coins are Mint State 65 specimens. The coins have an above-average mint luster with a few small contact marks, one or two patches of hairlines, and light scuff marks.
