The Indian Gold Eagle was the final design used for the $10 denomination of the US Eagle. Redesigned in 1907, the Indian Gold Eagle was one of two designs from Augustus Saint-Gaudens to grace the final iterations of US Eagle gold coinage. Available regularly from 1795 into the 20th century, the $10 Indian Gold Eagle ran into intermittent coining after 1916 and was notably struck just once in the 1920s at the Philadelphia Mint. Right now, 1926 $10 Indian Gold Eagle Coins with a Mint State grade are available to purchase online from JM Bullion.

The 1926 issue of the $10 Indian Gold Eagle at the Philadelphia Mint was the lone striking of this coin at that mint location throughout the entirety of the 1920s. Today, there is only an estimated 10% of the original mintage of 1926 Indian Gold Eagles still available. A graded Mint State item represents a small portion of that 10% remainder from the original issue.
On the obverse of 1926 $10 Indian Eagle Coins is a left-profile portrait of Liberty. Saint-Gaudens redesign of the Gold Eagle in 1907 envisioned a traditional Liberty figure with an indigenous headdress upon her head. There is an arch of 13 stars over her head and a date mark below.
The reverse side of the 1926 $10 Indian Gold Eagle features an American bald eagle perched with its wings resting at its sides. The eagle is perched on a sheaf of arrows that is wrapped in an olive branch, a twist on the traditional heraldic eagle design and its use of the arrows of war and olive branch of peace in the eagles talons.
