Gold Eagle Coins

The United States $10, or Eagle, was minted from 1792 until 1933 when gold was withdrawn from circulation. The designs included the Turban Head, the Liberty Head or Coronet, and the Indian Head. This dollar amount coin was discontinued in 1804 as ordered by President Jefferson because the coins contained more gold than the face value. It was thought the overweight coin would produce mass exports. But in 1838 production resumed of this high dollar amount coin. Every gold type collection should have this coin.
