The Indian Gold Coin series was the shortest-lived series in U.S. numismatics, minted from just 1908 to 1929. The $2.50 and $5 Indians were designed by Bela Lyon Pratt, a student of the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens. These two coins feature markings and inscriptions that are pressed into the coin.
Bela Lyon Pratt was, in fact, recommended to President Theodore Roosevelt, who was searching for a sculptor for these coins. Roosevelt’s friend, Dr. William Sturgis Bigelow, personally recommended Pratt. Pratt’s design for the $5 Indian Half Eagle is widely regarded as “innovative and daring.”
The $5 Indian Half Eagle was issued by the Philadelphia, Denver, New Orleans, and San Francisco Mints.
Obverse: Indian chief profile surrounded by 13 stars, the word “Liberty,” and the year of issue.
Reverse: Bald eagle clutching a cluster of arrows and an olive branch. The eagle is surrounded by the denomination and the words “United States of America,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and “In God We Trust.”
Some of the most popular grades among investors are MS62, MS63, MS64, MS65, and MS66, among others.
