Random Date 1839-1908 $10 Gold Liberty Head Eagle
Why add this Random Date 1839-1907 $10 Liberty Eagle Gold NGC MS62 to your collection?
This 1839-1907 $10 Liberty Gold Eagle remains in mint state more than a century after it was issued. In fact, the coin earned a grade of MS62 from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), which indicates that it has some flaws and likely has lost some of its luster, but it retains generally acceptable eye appeal. The images on the coin were created by Christian Gobrecht. Liberty faces to the left on the obverse. She is depicted in Greco-Roman style and wears a coronet that bears her name atop her head. For that reason, this coin is sometimes referred to as the “Coronet Eagle.” Her image is encircled by thirteen six-pointed stars and the year of mintage, which appears at the bottom. The reverse features Gobrecht’s adaptation of the design from the Great Seal of the United States. An eagle’s body is oriented toward the holder, though its head is turned to the left side of the coin. Its wings are spread upward, nearly touching the edge. In one of its talons it holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace, and in the other it holds arrows, a reference to the willingness of the country to fight for her values when necessary. Coins minted after 1866 include the national motto, “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
