The design of the $10 Indian Gold Eagle Coin was created by sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. It was meant to reflect the US’s budding sense of identity. Prominently displayed on its front side is Saint-Gaudens’ unique rendition of Lady Liberty, which depicts her in a traditional feathered war bonnet. This image was considered quite revolutionary for its period because it not only acknowledged the customs of the Native American people, but actively attempted to integrate them into the established US culture. Further emphasizing this theme is Saint-Gaudens’ inclusion of the design’s previous thirteen star border, which had served as a tribute to the original US colonies.
The reverse side of the coin offers an equally patriotic motif with Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of the Heraldic eagle. As with his portrayal of Lady Liberty, Saint-Gaudens chose to revise the existing representation of the iconic emblem with a more contemporary interpretation. His version of the Heraldic Eagle depicts the national bird as it perches vigilantly upon an olive branch and a pile of arrows.
