Why buy this $2.5 Gold 1926 Indian Head Quarter Eagle?

American history and numismatic history come together in this 1926 Indian Head Quarter Eagle. The coin is part of one of the most innovative series in American history, as its designs are struck into the coin rather than raised from it, otherwise known as "incuse." The coin comes from the sesquicentennial anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

  • This coin is $2.50 legal tender in the United States.
  • This coin was struck from 4.18 g of .900 fine gold.
  • This coin was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
  • This issue is part of a mintage of 446,000 pieces.

Powerful Incuse Indian Design by Bela Lyon Pratt

Obverse: Both faces of this coin bear incuse designs by Bela Lyon Pratt. On the obverse, a Native American man faces left, wearing a feathered headdress. "LIBERTY" is inscribed along the rim at the top, while the date, "1926," is at the bottom. Those two inscriptions are joined on the rim by thirteen stars.

Reverse: Pratt's obverse design features an eagle perched on a fasces that is wrapped in an olive branch. The statutory mottoes, "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST," are inscribed to the left and right, respectively. Rim inscriptions note the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "2 1/2 DOLLARS." Bela Lyon Pratt was a prolific sculptor and a student of Augustus Saint-Gaudens. His work can still be seen at such famous locations as Valley Forge and Salem, Massachusetts.

Beautifully Preserved Mint State 65 with Green label

The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Company (NGC) awarded this piece a grade of Mint State 65. That means that it was struck well and has no more than moderate hairlines or abrasions. The grade comes printed on NGC's Green Label, which is the result of a partnership between the grading company and Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA). To qualify for this label, a specimen must first be reviewed by RARCOA's team of experts and meet their criteria pertaining to luster, strike, and eye-appeal, prior to being sent to NGC for grading and encapsulation.
