The $10 gold eagle coin, named for the national bird depicted on its reverse, was created in 1795 to be the foundation of America’s federal monetary system. Used primarily in international and large-scale transactions or melted for its gold content in its own time, today, the gold eagle entices collectors with its beauty, value, and colorful history, from gold rushes and the 1933 “bank holiday” to sunken treasures and the collections of a king.
Author Q. David Bowers dives deeply into that history in “A Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins”, providing the political and economic backdrop for the gold eagle’s use throughout its lifespan. The second edition also features a wealth of up-to-date information for anyone who collects or appreciates $10 gold eagle coins, including full-color images, estimated surviving populations, recommended collecting grades, auction records, market values, buying advice, and commentaries on every coin from 1795-1933.
