Common NameEagle
SeriesIndian Gold Eagle
MaterialGold 92
Diameter (mm)0.0

Designer: Augustus Saint-Gaudens
History: Some believed the obverse to be Henrietta (Hettie) Anderson, others say the Indian was modeled after a figure of Nike (Victory). For the reverse, Saint-Gaudens adapted a standing eagle which had been used before on the inaugural medal created for Theodore Roosevelt in 1905.

The coinage of the 1907 with wire rim on the obverse and periods after the legend on the reverse is unknown. Estimates vary slightly, but 500 to 550 would seem to be the best guess, but at least 70 of these were melted in 1914-1915. The exact figures will never be known (assuming some uncovered or long-hidden records are not found). Current estimates of the population is 325 - 375, all with semi-lustrous (some where between matte and mint frost) surfaces.
