Gold is nearing a record all-time high of $2,320 per ounce as of 5/6/2024. MS63 1908 $2.50 Indian Head Gold Quarter Eagle Coin, Rare Coin Graded by PCGS. Issued between 1908-1929. The $2.50 Indian and the $5 Indian are unique in U.S. coinage due to their design. Bela Lyon Pratt was persuaded by Dr. William S. Bigelow, an intimate friend of President Roosevelt, to submit models of a new technique of making coins with devices sunk beneath the fields with the relief design depressed so that the highest points would not be worn away at once. The design is struck into he coin's face-below the level of the fields-as opposed to the standard minting process. This revolutionary design appears on quarter eagles of 1908 to 1929. This is a series that is widely collected.
