Why purchase this 1909-D Indian Head Gold Half Eagle coin?
In 1908, the U.S. Mint introduced the Indian Head Gold Half Eagle series, which featured two exciting U.S. coinage firsts: a rimless design and an incuse strike. The coin's innovative design is the work of Bela Lyon Pratt, an award-winning early 20th century American sculptor. At the time, the general public did not appreciate the new coin style, voicing concerns that germs and disease would collect in the design's recessed areas, a design feature which makes this piece all the more intriguing today.
Exceptionally Detailed Imagery
Obverse: The obverse depicts a Native American chief wearing a feathered ceremonial headdress. The portrait is encircled by thirteen stars, with "LIBERTY" inscribed above, "1909" and the artist's initials "BLP" below.
Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle is portrayed grasping an olive branch, while perched upon a bundle of arrows. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST" "FIVE DOLLARS" and the Mint mark "D."
