Why purchase this $10 Gold 1899 Liberty Head Eagle with Motto?

Turn of the century coins are always exciting finds for collectors, and this 1899 Gold Eagle is no exception. The coin bears famous designs that appeared on American coins for decades, but few of those bear the exciting dates of 1899 and 1900. The coin was struck on a 16.72 g planchet of .900 fine gold. It was part of a mintage of 1,262,219 pieces from the Philadelphia Mint.

Classic Liberty Head Design by Christian Gobrecht

Christian Gobrecht created the designs for both sides of this coin. On the obverse, he depicts Liberty as a young lady with a poised, serious look on her face. Her hair is tied back, and a few curls hang down. The date, "1899," is inscribed at the bottom, and thirteen stars represent the original states along the rim.

An eagle guards a union shield under a ribbon that reads, "IN GOD WE TRUST," the national motto, on the reverse. The bird spreads its wings widely. In its right talon, it holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace. In the left, it clutches arrows, symbols of military readiness. Two inscriptions, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "TEN D," are included along the rim.

Very Well Preserved MS62

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin a Mint State 62 grade. That grade indicates that a coin has never been circulated and lacks any signs of wear.
