The $10 Gold Eagle was born out of the U.S. Mint Act of April 2, 1792 that authorized a gold $10 eagle with a weight of 270 grains of gold. The Gold Eagle is a foundational early gold coin first struck by hand on a screw press at the original Philadelphia Mint. There were two types of Early Gold Eagles; the Capped Bust (Turban Head) Right with the Small Eagle reverse (1795-1797), and the Capped Bust with the Heraldic eagle reverse of the Great Seal of the United States (1797-1804), both designed by U.S. Mint First Chief Engraver, Robert Scot. In 1804 the minting of $10 Eagles was suspended until 1938, when a new Coronet Liberty design was released from the Third U.S. Mint Chief Engraver, Christian Gobrecht. There were three Types of the new $10 Liberties; Type 1, Covered Ear (1838-1839), Type 2, No Motto (1839-1866), Type 3, With Motto (1866-1907). In 1907, the Coronet Head design was retired by President Theodore Roosevelt, to be replaced by an Augustus Saint-Gaudens inspired Indian Head motif that would be minted until the end of U.S. gold coinage in 1933 by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Gold Recall Act.
