These gold coins were minted from 1908-1929 are now pieces of American history. The currency was in circulation until President Franklin Roosevelt ordered all Americans to turn in their gold coins to have them melted into gold bars during the Great Depression. The melting of these once common gold coins made them difficult to find and highly sought after by investors.

 

The obverse of the coin features the left-facing profile of a Native American chief, the reverse is a beautiful American Eagle. Below the eagle, grasped within its talons are arrows and an olive branch. The arrows are symbolic of war while the olive branch is a symbol of peace. There are only two coins ever produced by the U.S. Mint to have a sunken-relief design with the Indian Head gold coin being one. Because of the confiscation and sunken-relief, the Indian Head coin is one of the most rare and unique coins in the history of the United States.

 

Considering the history, uniqueness, and rarity of these gold coins makes them a welcome addition to any financial portfolio or collection.
