1925 Gold Indian NGC AU 58 $2.50 Coin

First struck in 1908, Indian Head $2.5 gold quarter-eagles are among the most unique and fascinating of U.S. coins. Certified in almost uncirculated (AU) 58 condition, they're an excellent value and make an exciting addition to any coin collections. The $2.5 Indian features an infuse design, meaning images and inscriptions are actually cut into the coin surface.

All other U.S. coins, before and since, are struck in bas-relief, meaning their designs are raised slightly above the surface fields. President Theodore Roosevelt, the driving force behind so many American innovations in the early 1900s, is credited with bringing this new design into circulation, just as he had inspired the spectacular Saint-Gaudens $20 double-eagle and Indian Head $10 eagle that debuted in 1907. The obverse features a Native American, the first American Indian ever to appear on United States coinage. Previously, Caucasians dressed in Native American attire were used as models.

The chief on the Indian Head is wearing a full-feathered headdress with the word 'Liberty' inscribed above the headband. A border of 13 stars and the minting date encircle him. The reverse of the $2.50 coin features a proud bald eagle standing among olive branches, surrounded by the words 'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA'. The motto 'In God We Trust,' and the denomination also appear on the reverse.
