Why Buy This MS62 1926 Indian Head $10 Gold Eagle with Motto?

Before 1933, the U.S. Mint struck gold coins in a variety of denominations that were for circulation. The Eagle shown here has a face value of $10. This specimen was struck in 1926 at the Philadelphia Mint. There were 1,014,000 of these minted, making this and the 1932 issue, some of the most common dates in the Indian Head gold design series which ran from 1907-1933. The coin offered here displays the "with motto" design variety.

Indian Head Design by Saint-Gaudens

Both sides of this coin feature highly detailed designs by renowned numismatic designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The obverse shows Saint-Gaudens' portrait of Liberty in a Native American style head dress. The date is at the bottom of the design and 13 stars can be seen at the top.

Several inscriptions are on the reverse. The motto portion can be seen here as well as the face value. This design shows a highly detailed bald eagle in a standing position.

Another notable aspect of this design was that instead of the coin featuring a lettered or reeded edge, 46 stars were placed on the edge and would remain there from 1907-1911. From 1912-1933, this would change to 48 stars to represent the two newly added states.
