Among the United States’ most historical pieces of currency is the Indian Gold Eagle Coin, which was first released by the US Mint in 1908. Each coin possessed a gold content of .12094 troy oz. The Indian Gold Eagle coin continued to be in circulation until 1927, when World War I diminished the value and circulation of gold. Since its discontinuation, it has become increasingly difficult to obtain one of these rare pieces, much less find one in acceptable condition. Fortunately, JM Bullion is pleased to offer you access to its collection of cleaned Indian Gold Eagle coins. While the condition of these individual coins may vary, collectors can rest assured that each of them has received the utmost care in terms of removing any traces of residue or debris.

Another characteristic that makes this coin so valuable to collectors and investors is its recessed design. While most coins feature raised images, this particular coin’s images have been carved into itself, creating a realistic sense of depth in the design. The Indian Gold Eagle Coin is the last US piece of currency to possess a recessed design, which makes it a highly sought-after piece by both collectors and investors.
The images themselves are a tribute to early Americana. A noble Native American warrior appears on the front of the coin in his feathered headdress. His portrait is framed by a border consisting of thirteen stars, the word “Liberty” and the coin’s mintage year. The back of the coin depicts the American bald eagle, stealthily perched on a set of arrows entwined with an olive branch.
Investors and collectors are sure to appreciate such a historical artifact. However, due to its limited availability, we recommend customers to order theirs while our supplies last. As a courtesy, JM Bullion provides tracking and insurance of every package, and ships each mailing discreetly.
