The Return of the Gold Indian

The unique $2.50 and $5 Gold Indians were the only incuse coins ever struck in U.S. history. Always popular, they're an elusive quarry for collectors to track down. When they were first released, however, the public expressed concerns about the Indian Head design and cleanliness of the incuse (sunk-in) images. This disdain for the $2.50 and $5 Indians in the early 1900s, coupled with the U.S. Treasury gold confiscation and subsequent meltdown during the Great Depression, meant few were saved. Nice examples like these $5 specimens are tough to find today. With collector interest in these beauties skyrocketing, order now to avoid disappointment! Dates vary.
