Patterned after the $2.50 & $5.00 Indian Head Gold Coin Minted from 1908 to 1929, these Silver Incuse Indian Rounds contain 1/10th troy ounce of pure .999 silver each, are hallmark stamped to that effect, and are roughly the same size as a dime. Their design is taken directly from one of the most famous coins in U.S. history: the Indian Head Half Eagle $5 Gold Piece.
The quality that sets these coins apart from all others stylistically is their unprecedented incuse relief: unlike any other modern design, the images and inscriptions on the Indian Head Half Eagle are sunken into the surface of the coin. Bela-Lyon Pratt, a well-known American sculptor and artist, crafted a Native American in full headdress surrounded by thirteen stars for the coin’s obverse. An American eagle standing atop fasces and an olive branch – symbols of military preparedness and peace, respectively – appears on the reverse.
With uncertain economic times and silver prices on the rise, multiple denominations of bullion are highly desired. These, and other fractional silver coins are available in 1/2, 1/4, 1/10, & 1 troy ounce .999 Fine Silver rounds.
