$10 INDIAN HEAD EAGLES
Teddy Roosevelt's Ten Dollar Indians
The history of United States coinage is filled with wonderful and at times bizarre, behind the scenes stories. A case could be made that the Indian Head Liberty Eagle, sporadically minted between 1907-1933, is perhaps the most unusual numismatic tale of all. This historic coin is the result of an unprecedented collaboration between perhaps the greatest sculptor of the 20th century and a dynamic President who was not supposed to be President at all.
In 1900, Republican Party leaders were puzzled and maybe even a bit frightened over the charismatic energy of the young Theodore Roosevelt. In an attempt to corral him, they selected him to fill the largely ceremonial post of Vice President and selected the less vigorous William McKinley for the Presidency. However, when McKinley was assassinated in 1901 shortly after taking office, Theodore Roosevelt was thrust directly into the White House and American history was forever changed.
