Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the artwork of the $10 Indian Gold Eagle celebrates the newfound sense of national identity that was beginning to permeate the US. Its obverse features Lady Liberty attired in the feathered war bonnet as a tribute this country’s Native American people. Also integrated in the obverse’s design is a series of stars arranged in an arched formation above her head. These represent the original thirteen colonies. Lastly, printed directly beneath Lady Liberty’s profile is the coin’s mintage year.
The reverse side of the coin displays Saint-Gaudens’ rendition of the classic Heraldic Eagle. While previous versions of this emblem have depicted the eagle in flight, Saint-Gaudens chose to present a more dignified image by portraying the eagle in a standing position on top of an olive branch and bundle of arrows. Further enhancing his portrayal of the national bird is its detailed rendering, in particular the texture of its feathers and the shape of its beak. Saint-Gaudens finishes his stunning artwork with the words, “E Plusribus Unum” and “In God We Trust.”
