The Indian $10 gold coin was first produced shortly after the turn of the 20th century. Though incredibly popular during its day, the coin was only produced for little more than twenty years. Though the coin had a big face value for its day, it was still widely circulated and was used by many, many US citizens. Nowadays, it is collectors from the US and elsewhere around the world who are looking to add these coins to their collection. Unfortunately for many, the fact that collectors only want to add the most well-preserved coins to their collections means that very few are left in pristine condition.

As time moves forward, acquiring the $10 Indian is only going to grow to be increasingly difficult as fewer and fewer of them will be up for sale. You have to keep in mind, however, that because these coins are made of gold means that they will always be popular amongst collectors and investors alike.

What You Will Pay for a $10 Indian Gold Coin

The asking price for the average $10 Indian range dramatically, but it is safe to say that you will not pay less than $500 for these coins. Even in poor condition, the sheer scarcity and the fact that these coins are made of gold will make them popular forever. As the condition of the coin improves, the price you are going to be asked to pay will increase; and at times dramatically so.

Though $500 is more or less the baseline price for one of these pieces, you should not be at all surprised if you see a price tag that is approaching 4-figures. In fact, if the coin in question is in Uncirculated condition you will be hard-pressed to find it being sold for less than $1,000. Of course, the exact asking price is always dependent on the person selling the coin, so you have to do comparison shopping prior to ever making a purchase. Comparison shopping will ensure that you are getting the best possible price.

The Most Sought After $10 Indian Gold Coins

Generally speaking, the most sought after Liberty coins are those that have survived the years in excellent condition. As most coin collectors are well-aware, very few coins of this age have survived in great condition, and more still have survived in fairly poor condition. The first and last years the coin was minted (1907 and 1933) are especially popular editions, though this should come as no surprise.

Something that is important not to forget is the fact that some years saw up to 3 different types of the coin produced. So while the 1908 Liberty may have an asking price of $500, its 1908S counterpart may be listed with starting prices of $700 and up. Once again, this is another situation where comparison shopping comes into play. The more you know prior to making a purchase the more likely you are to make a purchase that most accurately suits your individualized needs.

Future Value of $10 Indian Gold Coins

Though you may be well-versed with regard to how much these coins cost during the present day, there is no surefire way of knowing how much they will cost 10, 20, or even thirty years down the line. Though exact figures are difficult to come up with, we can assuredly say that the $10 Indian will only ever grow in value. The upward moving price of gold combined with the fact that these coins will only become scarcer and scarcer means that asking prices, in all likelihood, are going to increase as time moves forward. This is why we suggest purchasing coins now as opposed to waiting, because it is only going to be increasingly difficult to acquire these coins in great condition.
