The $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagle features a Native American wearing an intricate feather headdress. He is surrounded by thirteen stars (meant to symbolize the original 13 colonies), along with the coin’s date and the word “LIBERTY.” Like the reverse, the obverse of the $2.50 Indian piece is engraved in an incuse format. This means that the design details are recessed or sunken.


In the center of the reverse, an eagle is shown sitting on a bundle of arrows with an olive branch in its talons. The arrows and olive branch symbolize America’s desire for peace, combined with its ability to defend in military conflict. Encircling the bird are the country of origin, the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST,” the coin’s denomination of $2.50 US dollars, and the legend “E PLURIBUS UNUM.” As is the case with the obverse, the reverse features incused design elements.

About the $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagle

The $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagle is one of America’s most beloved coins thanks to its beautiful design and unique format. Along with the $5 Indian Half Eagle, which shares a similar motif, it is one of two incuse coins in American numismatic history. The coin was designed by Bela Lyon Pratt, a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who admired the famous sculptor’s creativity. Much like the $10 Indian and $20 “Saint,” Pratt strived to make the $2.50 Indian a truly unusual coin unlike any other previously made by the U.S. Mint.

These $2.50 Indian Quarter Eagles are in Almost Uncirculated condition, which means that they show just the slightest signs of use or wear. Also known as “AU,” this grade is perfect for those who want to own a coin that looks Uncirculated without the higher price tag. Many of the coins being offered today are “near miss” specimens that are extremely close to being Mint State.

The coins in this category will have a random year of issue depending on our current inventory.
