One of the most recognizable coin designs in modern history is without a doubt that which is found on the $5 Indian Gold Half Eagle. These coins are guaranteed to be Mint State 62 and ship in their certified slabs, which show the year the coin was minted as well as its grade as provided by the PCGS or the NGC. The Indian Head Gold Eagle coin is a perfect representation of all things American and, as such, is sought after by investors and collectors both in the United States and from around the world. The detail and care that the US Mint put into these coins is just as evident now as it was more than 100 years ago when these coins were first minted.
The design of the Indian Head coin may not be as well-known as Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle, but it is just as intricate. These coins weigh just about one quarter ounce and are composed of 90% pure gold, meaning there is about .2419 troy ounces of gold in each and every coin. The coins obverse plays host to the image of a Native American chief in full dcor. Comprising the outside of the obverse side are 13 stars as well as inscriptions marking the year in which the coin was minted as well as the word Liberty. The coins reverse depicts an American Eagle perched on a fasces, or bundle of sticks bound together. The eagle is also atop an olive branch. Inscriptions on the coins reverse include United States of America, In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, and the $5 face value.
The intricacy of this coins design is undoubtedly one of the reasons it is still relevant today, though the fact that it has a relatively high level of purity doesnt hurt. For these reasons, the MS62 $5 Indian Head Gold Eagle coin is both a great investment vehicle as well as a rare collectors item. When you purchase this or any other coin, your shipment will be carefully packaged and fully insured.
