The $2.50 Indian Gold Quarter Eagle Coin was introduced in 1908 to replace the previous $2.50 Liberty Quarter Eagle. What makes these coins unique to others produced by the US Mint for circulation prior to 1933 was the fact that their design is incuse. All other coins that preceded it featured a raised design. This, along with other things, has lead to immense popularity among collectors today.
The obverse, and where the coin gets its name, features the image of a Native American chieftain. He is shown with a stern look on his face and is wearing a traditional Native Americanheaddress. Above his head is the word LIBERTY which is surrounded by 13 stars, representing the original 13 American colonies.
The reverse side of each Indian Quarter Eagle features a bald eagle perched on top of several arrows. The bird has an olive branch in its right talon and the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA is featured atop its head. To the left and right of the eagle are the phrases E. Pluribus Unum and IN GOD WE TRUST respectively.
