Why buy this 1892 Liberty Head $10 Gold coin?

The $10 Gold Liberty Head has a fascinating history. Due to fluctuating market prices in precious metals, the US standard of 15 silver ounces to one gold ounce proved unworkable, as coins were melted and sent to Europe to be sold at spot. Production of $10 gold coins stopped from 1804-1838, and the 1838 Liberty Head was the first $10 gold coin issued after that break. In 1866, the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," was added to the issue. Part of a mintage of 797,480 pieces, this coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint from 16.72 g of .900 fine gold.

Classic Liberty Design by Christian Gobrecht

Christian Gobrecht created the designs that appear on both faces of this coin. On the obverse is a left-side portrait of Liberty. She has her hair held back with a few curls that fall down her neck. On her head is a coronet that bears an inscription of her name, "LIBERTY." Thirteen stars, which represent the original states, spread throughout the rim. They are joined at the bottom by an inscription of the date, "1892."

On the reverse, an eagle protects a union shield. It spreads its wings toward the rim and clutches arrows and an olive branch in its claws. The arrows serve as reminders to all that America is willing to defend her values, while the olive branch indicates that the country would prefer peace. Above the eagle's head, a ribbon with the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," unfurls. Rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "TEN D."
