The $10 Indian Head MS-62 1913 P Gold Coin is a Gold Numismatic Coin consisting of 90% gold and 10% copper.
Production of this coin began in the year 1907 and was the first and only denomination to be minted with this design. Two other denominations, the $2.5 and the $5 were minted the following year in 1908 but have a different designer. Three different types of designs were minted for the $10 coin in 1907 alone. The Type One design has a wired edge, the Type Two a curled edge, and the Type Three is missing a period next to the words “Ten Dollars.” The final design is known as Type Four and has the motto, “In God We Trust” which wasn’t added until 1908, and the missing period next to the face value amount.
These coins were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens on commission from President Theodore Roosevelt himself, who wished to redo the entire spectrum of American coinage.
The obverse of this coin features a woman wearing an Indian war bonnet. Below her is the date of mintage and above her are 13 stars for the first 13 colonies in the United States.
The reverse bares a young eagle perched on a branch. Above its head are the words, “United States of America,” and below it the coin’s face value amount written out as, “Ten Dollars.” At its sides are the famous mottos “In God We Trust,” and “E. Pluribus Unum.”
