The Indian Head Half Eagle authorized by the Act of April 2, 1792. In 1908, this gold coin sparked controversy and spread fear across our nation. So loudly was the coin condemned, people were scared to save them in their collections for fear of germs spreading from the coin’s innovative recessed design.
Over a century later, that unfounded fear has resulted in the Indian Head Half Eagles becoming a series with relatively few examples surviving in higher grades.
