The Liberty Head design in the $10 Gold Eagle Series, also known as the Liberty Coronet, was the longest-lived design in the series. Introduced in 1837, the image was struck on the coins from 1838 to 1907, far surpassing the other coins in the series. The Indian Head image on the coins was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and was on the coins until the final strikes in 1907.
$10 Gold Eagles were wildly popular in American commerce throughout the issue of both of these designs. The $10 denomination was preferred for most transactions, but surviving specimens can be hard to come by. The onset of the Great Depression in the 1930s, coupled with the federal government’s decision to collect and melt down gold, resulted in a massive volume of coins being lost.
Liberty features in two different reliefs on the obverse of the Pre-33 $10 Gold Eagle Coins in this two-coin set. The Liberty Head design features the classic left-profile portrait of Liberty wearing a large coronet in her hair. This design has 13 stars spread around the top rocker and a date mark below. The Indian Head design depicts Liberty with a feathered headdress on her head, a date mark at the bottom, and an arch of 13 stars above.
Two different versions of the American bald eagle appear on the reverse of Pre-33 $10 Indian and Liberty Eagle Gold Coins. The Liberty Head design comes with a classic depiction of the heraldic eagle, while the Indian Head coin comes with a bald eagle resting on a sheaf of arrows with an olive branch around the sheaf.
These Pre-33 $10 Indian and Liberty Gold Eagle 2-Coin Sets come with random dates on the coins befitting their production cycle and XF+ conditions. Coins in this condition have wear only on the highest points with some traces of the mint luster still possible.
