The coin itself weighs in at around a quarter of an ounce and is comprised of 90% pure gold. Officially, there is roughly .2419 troy ounces of gold in each coin. By todays standards, the 90% level of purity is a bit lower than average, but during the 1908-1929 timeframe in which these coins were minted this level of purity was matched by few other mints. The design of the obverse side of the Indian Head was drafted by Bela-Lyon Pratt and depicts a Native American equipped with his customary headdress. The outer edges of the coins obverse are marked by 13 stars, the year in which the coin was minted, and an inscription of the word Liberty. The coins reverse depicts an American eagle perched on a tied bundle of sticks and an olive branch. The four inscriptions found on the reverse side of the $5 Indian Head Gold Eagle include In God We Trust, E Pluribus Unum, United States of America, and the $5 face value.
