At a size of .2418 oz, this Indian Gold Half Eagle has a fineness of .900, courtesy of its mintage period preceding the 1933 gold currency cessation. In 1908, the United States mint first released this coin. It is the most distinct, and last, version of the Half Eagle coins. To the coin itself, a recessed design has been uniquely engraved. Designs are sculpted into the surface of most coins.
The reverse side of this Mint State 63 (MS 63) coin shows the iconic emblem of the Heraldic Eagle, this time designed by Bela Lyon Platt. He offers a more literal portrayal of the classic, traditional eagle image. Arrows and an olive branch still appear in the design, however. A Native American chief wearing a traditional feathered war bonnet is portrayed on the front side of this coin. In honor of the original colonies, 13 stars border the chief's profile.
