Straight from the dawn of the 20th century, this historic $5 gold Indian Head lends distinction to any collection. Over a century ago, America's coinage renaissance was in full swing. This movement produced the country's only half eagle series with an incuse design (sunk below the coin's surface) – the gold $5 Indian Head.
In 1913, the Philadelphia Mint issued 915,901 $5 gold pieces. Many were lost forever when the Treasury called in gold coins and bullion in 1933 and today, it's estimated that less than 5% of the original mintage (about 42,000) survive in all grades! With most of their original luster, these beautifully detailed Choice About Uncirculated, AU-58 coins are well-preserved pieces of America's past. Each has been graded by our experts and certified by NGC. This year, give an exceptional gift.
