Why does this 1909 Indian Head Half Eagle $5 gold coin deserve a place in your collection?
The Indian Head Half Eagle series, issued from 1908 until 1929, was the last circulating $5 denomination gold coin series to be produced by the U.S. Mint. Along with the Indian Head Quarter Eagle issued at the same time with an identical design, the series stands out in the history of the Mint as the first coins to feature an incuse strike and a rimless design.
Gorgeously Rendered Design
Obverse: The image of a Native American chief wearing a ceremonial feathered headdress is located on the obverse. The image is accompanied by thirteen stars, along with the inscriptions "LIBERTY," "1909" and the artist's initials "BLP," crediting Boston sculptor Bela Lyon Pratt with the coin's design. Mr. Pratt had been an assistant in the private studio of Augustus Saint-Gaudens (1907 Double Eagle designer).
Reverse: An eagle grasps an olive branch on the reverse, while standing in an alert pose on a bundle of arrows. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "IN GOD WE TRUST" and "FIVE DOLLARS."
