Designs for the US Eagle denomination were first introduced in the $10 denomination in 1792. Regular coining of the new US dollar-based gold coins began in 1795 with the Eagle, Half Eagle, and Quarter Eagle. In the 1850s, a Double Eagle was added to the series. In the 20th century, the US Mint slowed its production of fresh gold coins starting with World War I and continuing until the end of gold coining in 1933. Today, you have the opportunity to get 1926 $10 Indian Eagle Gold Coins in Mint State condition online from Provident Metals.
Certified versions of the 1926 $10 Indian Eagle Gold Coins are some of the hardest coins to find in the series. The 1926 release from the Philadelphia Mint numbered just over one million in total and estimates suggest only 10% of those original coins survive today. The vast majority of those coins have become damaged and worn by circulation use or poor storage. That makes certified coins, particularly Mint State 64 or higher, exceptional pieces to behold.
On the obverse side of 1926 $10 Indian Eagle Gold Coins is a left-profile bust of Liberty. This depiction of Liberty includes a feathered headdress upon her head, a feature of the design requested by President Theodore Roosevelt after early concept designs used only a feathered crown. There is an arch of 13 stars over her head and a 1926 date mark at the bottom.
The reverse field of 1926 Indian Eagle Gold Coins comes with a design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The design shows a bald eagle resting with its wings at its side as it sits perched on a sheaf of arrows. The sheaf is covered by an olive branch. Saint-Gaudens is believed to have taken inspiration from an Ancient Egyptian coin that showed a powerful eagle similarly perched. Inscriptions include United States of America, E Pluribus Unum, In God We Trust, and Ten Dollars.
Only five releases of the Indian Eagle Gold Coin occurred after 1916. The San Francisco Mint issued coins in 1920 and 1930. The Philadelphia Mint issued coins in 1926, 1932, and 1933. When the 1926 Philadelphia issue is compared to its 1932 release, the mintage of one million in 1926 is dwarfed by the 4.4 million coins issued in 1932.
1926 $10 Indian Eagle Gold Coins in Mint State 64 condition have average luster remaining. The coins may have small clusters of contact marks and one or two hairlines, at the most. Provident Metals cannot guarantee whether your coin comes with a PCGS or NGC label. If you buy multiples, you may get coins that all have a PCGS label, all have an NGC label, or come with a mixture of the two.
