One of two coins designed by prestigious American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the $10 Indian gold coin is one of the United States’ most-beautiful coins. (August Saint-Gaudens also designed the $20 Saint-Gaudens.)
The obverse (front) shows Lady Liberty with an Indian war bonnet, inscribed “LIBERTY.” Above her head, 13 stars for the original 13 colonies arc. Underneath her is the issue date.The reverse shows a bald eagle puffing its chest among olive branches. “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” Latin for “From Many, One,” is right of the eagle. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” is at top, and “TEN DOLLARS” is at bottom. “IN GOD WE TRUST” was added to the coin in mid-1908 by an act of Congress.The most unique feature of the $10 Indian is the raised stars along the edge, rather than a lettered or reeded edge. Coins struck from 1907-1911 feature 46 stars. Two more stars were added in 1912 for the newest states, New Mexico and Arizona.
In 1907, 500 $10 Indians were struck with a wire rim, giving them more 3-D look. The United States Mint produced all subsequent coins with regular strikes.
This is a premium coin, meaning the coin’s price includes a premium above the melt value of the precious metal it contains, which includes Augusta’s margin. This premium is solely determined and controlled by Augusta, based on factors Augusta deems valuable in determining and controlling such premium. Other retailers may not recognize the premium value that Augusta recognizes for this premium coin and may only be willing to pay as little as the melt value for this coin (the value of the precious metal that the coin contains). If you sell this coin to a retailer that does not recognize the premium value assessed by Augusta at the time of sale, then such sale may result in significant losses. Augusta cannot guarantee that it will buyback any item it sells and cannot guarantee another retailer will purchase this premium coin.
