Theodore Roosevelt felt that the coins that were in use at that time were hideous and in order to give a makeover to the American coins, he commissioned the popular sculptor of that time Augustus Saint-Gaudens to come up with some beautiful designs for the four American coins; the Double Eagle, Eagle, Half Eagle, and Quarter Eagle. Augustus Saint-Guadens designs for the Double Eagle and Eagle was received with a lot of praise and adulation from the public.However, the untimely death of Augusts Saint-Gaudens the designs for the Half Eagle and Quarter Eagle were not completed. While the mint officials were of the notion that a scaled down image of the Saint-Gaudens' Double Eagle design will be used on the Half and Quarter Eagles, President Theodore Roosevelt had other plans. A friend of the president, Dr. William Sturgis Bigelow who had great appreciation for the SaintGaudens' design of Double Eagle, wrote to Theodore Roosevelt appreciating the coin and that he had been working with a Boston Sculptor, Bela Lyon Pratt on a new idea of incused or sunken minting process that allowed coins to be struck in high relief while also making it easily stackable and also protect the coin's design from wear and tear. The President who did not fear with experimentation expressed interest in this idea. The incused design seemed practical for commerce and Bela Pratt had a similar design for both. The obverse of the coin featured a detailed image of a male Native American.
Wearing a headdress and this image is encircled by date, thirteen stars, and the motto LIBERTY. On the reverse, has the design of a American Bald Eagle perched on a bunch of arrows holding an. Olive branch in his talons symbolizing preparedness and peace. The inscriptions include United S.Tates of America", "E Pluribus Unum", "In God We Trust" and the denomination "2 1? Upon the coin's release in November 1908, it was received with mixed reviews. Although many liked the innovative style of the coin and the artistic quality, many also found fault in the design. The incusing of the design was an unfamiliar thing at that time and stirred criticism. A numismatist from Philadelphia, Samuel Chapman criticized in a letter to Theodore Roosevelt that the indentations in the coins would harbor dirt and germs and that the coin can be easily counterfeited by carving a disc metal, that it could not be stacked easily, and that the coin was not even good looking. However, this claim did not alter President Theodore Roosevelt's faith in the coin even a bit and today this is one of the most sought after coin. These Indian Head Eagles were struck from 1908 through 1915, then the production was suspended for a decade. Again the coins were struck from 1925 to 1929.
This is one of the smallest series with just 15 different date and mint combinations; 12 issue from Philadelphia Mint and 3 issue from Denver Mint. Its rarity, age, and historical significance with a great track record on price performance have made it a sought after coin by investors and collectors alike.
