Why does this 1932 Indian Head $10 Gold Eagle coin belong in your collection?
The Indian Head Gold Eagle was the final series of circulating ten dollar denomination gold coinage to be issued by the U.S. Mint. The series was produced annually from 1907 until 1916, then sporadically until the federal gold recall in 1933. The series was minted with a smooth edge embellished with raised stars corresponding to the number of states in the union, which was forty-eight in 1932. This 1932 dated example, from the penultimate release of the series, was struck from 0.4838 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold at the Mint's Philadelphia branch. Final mintage is reported to be 4,463,000 coins.
Important Events During the Year of Issues
Historical events - both the Winter and Summer Olympics are held in the USA with the Winter Olympics held in Lake Placid, New York (the same place as the Miracle on Ice in 1980) and the Summer Olympics held in Los Angeles, CA ...the shocking event that captured the world's attention when Charles Lindbergh's infant son, was kidnapped. Ten weeks later, sadly, the baby was found dead near the Lindbergh home in New Jersey. At the time it was considered to be the "Crime of the Century." The assailant, Richard Hauptmann, a German immigrant carpenter, who professed his innocence throughout the trial and after, was electrocuted in 1935. Looking back, many people felt he was a scapegoat because of the anti-German sentiment at the time.
The big movie in theaters was "Tarzan the Ape Man" starring Johnny Weissmuller, a gold medalist swimmer, who starred in 12 Tarzan movies. It was this year that President Herbert Hoover was also roundly defeated by Franklin Roosevelt who would serve four 4 terms as President, more than any other President in history
Notable births in this year include Ted Kennedy (long term Senator from MA), Johnny Cash (country singer), Elizabeth Taylor, Debbie Reynolds, Peter O'Toole (Irish actor).
