The History of the $10 Gold Liberty

The $10 Liberty gold coin, often referred to as an ‘Eagle’, was one of the first American gold coins produced. Designed by Christian Gobrecht, the $10 Liberty was one of the most circulated and popular coins in U.S. history. The obverse (front) of the coin features Lady Liberty donning a coronet (crown) inscribed with the word ‘LIBERTY’.

The date and 13 stars surround her, representing the original 13 colonies. The reverse (back) features a bald eagle with spread wings, clutching an olive branch and three arrows in his talons. There is also a shield with stars and stripes on the eagle’s chest. The denomination, the Mint Mark, and the words ‘UNITED STATES OF AMERICA’ surround the eagle.

The motto ‘IN GOD WE TRUST’ was not included on these coins minted in 1838 and 1866. Although, in 1866 the $10 Liberty reverse was modified by adding the motto on a ribbon above the eagle.
