Why buy this $2.50 Gold 1928 Indian Head Quarter Eagle?

Every collector should have at least one Indian Head coin. The coins are usually extremely popular today given their incuse designs, which distinguish them from other historic American coinage. This is somewhat ironic given that the use of incuse designs was controversial at the time. This coin comes from the penultimate issue of the $2.50 Indian Head Gold Quarter Eagle.

  • This piece was $2.50 legal tender in the United States.
  • This issue was struck from 4.18 g of .900 fine gold.
  • This piece was struck at the Philadelphia Mint.
  • This coin comes from a mintage of 416,000 pieces.
  • This coin has incuse designs, which mean that the images are pressed into the surface of the coin rather than raised from it.
  • Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this piece Mint State 63.
  • This piece was awarded NGC's Green Label.

Unique Incuse Indian Head Design by Bela Lyon Pratt

Obverse: Bela Lyon Pratt's obverse design depicts a Native American man in left-side profile. He wears an elaborate feathered headdress. The image is encircled by thirteen stars and two inscriptions, "LIBERTY" and "1928."

Reverse: On the reverse, an eagle stands perched on arrows that are wrapped in a branch. To the left and right of the eagle, respectively, are the statutory mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST." Rim inscriptions provide the issuing country's name, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the coin's face value, "2 1/2 DOLLARS."

Well Preserved MS63 with Green Label

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this piece is in Mint State 63 condition, which means that the coin has a slightly weak or average strike and shows no traces of wear. In addition, it also earned the right to bear the prestigious Green Label which is only awarded to coins that prior to being submitted for grading, were first selected by experts at Rare Coin Company of America (RARCOA) for possessing exceptional qualities such as shining luster, stunning eye-appeal, intriguing toning, or a solid strike. Coins are then submitted to NGC where they undergo grading and encapsulation.
