Full Description

The Indian Head version of the Gold Half Eagle coin was in production from 1908-1929. This type was the last of the half eagle coins, a series that began in 1795, not long after the U.S. was founded. The design and inscriptions are stamped in incuse, meaning that the flat surfaces are the high points of the design. This coin, offered here in Extremely Fine XF condition, has only slight wear on these higher flat surfaces and may still have traces of luster. The $5 Indian Gold Half Eagle’s .2149 troy oz. of .900 fine gold give it intrinsic value for investors, while its numismatic features appeal to collectors.

Obverse

Created by sculptor Bela Lyons Pratt, the obverse design of an American Indian in full feathered headdress presents an enduring image of Native American dignity, power and wisdom. Above the Indian is the word ‘Liberty,’ while below is the year. Thirteen stars around the side edges of the coin represent the 13 original colonies.

Reverse

The reverse features an American eagle holding a bundle of arrows in its talons. An olive branch curves in front of the arrows, signifying peace. Above the eagle are the words ‘United States of America.’ To the left is the motto ‘E Pluribus Unum’ and to the right is the motto ‘In God We Trust.’ Below the eagle is the face value of ‘Five Dollars.’
