Ten Dollar Gold Coins or Eagles were made from 1795 to 1933. Several different types were made as follows: --- Capped Bust to Right, Small Eagle from 1795 to 1797 --- Capped Bust to Right, Heraldic Eagle from 1787 to 1804 --- Liberty Head from 1838 to 1907 --- Indian Head from 1907 to1933.
Ten Dollar Gold Coins were made in all the operating mints of the time and many rare and scarce dates exist.
A nice pleasing early 'Ten'.
Indian Head. Wire Edge. Technically a pattern, struck to examine Augustus St. Gauden's Indian Head design. 472 coins were distributed to dignitaries and politicians. They were deemed impractical for mass production and Charles Barber modified the design in low relief. Many experts believe these are really proof strikings although PCGS only grades them as business strikes. This example has a wonderful orange-gold Roman finish reminiscent of proofs from this era. A work of art as well as a significant piece of American history!
Well struck with flashy orange-gold luster and nice clean surfaces. From the final year of the series and 1 of only 2 years that $10 Liberty's were struck at the Denver Mint.
Well struck and lustrous with remarkably few marks for the grade.
A better date in mint state with a mintage of 138,500. This well struck example has bright yellow-gold luster and no major abrasions.
Rich orange-gold luster and a sharp strike with excellent eye appeal.
