$10 Indian Head Eagle

In 1905, Augustus Saint-Gaudens was tasked with redesigning all the American coinage. But he was only able to complete two denominations before his passing: the Indian $10 and the Indian $20. Both were first struck in 1907. The obverse of the $10 design features a woman wearing an Indian war bonnet. The reverse features an eagle perched on a branch. Between the years 1907 and 1933, there are several rare varieties. In the last year, just 312,500 were minted, and nearly all were later melted. Among the scarcest are the 1920-S, the 1930-S, and the 1907 $10 pieces with periods before and after the phrase “E PLURIBUS UNUM.”
