Description

A numismatic icon for the ages! This was a big year for gold coins. It was the year of Augustus St. Gaudens redesign ( at the request of President Roosevelt) of our $10 and $20 gold coins. What he came up with was three of the all-time classic icons of the U.S. rare coin market: the 1907 High Relief $20 St. Gaudens, the 1907 Wire Edge $10 Indian and the 1907 Rolled Edge $10 Indian. The two $10 Indians were his beautiful, yet impractical, designs for the $10 gold coins. As his first to designs were impractical for commercial use, only a few “test” strikings were produced. Today, those two strikings, the Wire Edge and Rolled Edge, are two of the classic rarities of the 20th Century gold coin market. Of the two, the Rolled Edge is by far the rarest. It is estimated that about 200 Wire Edges survive today in all grades and only 40 to 45 Rolled Edges survive. The 1907 Rolled Edge $10 Indian is one of the icons of the rare coin market and has been a high demand coin for the past 100 years! It is one of our “Forever” coins. This is a spectacular Gem with a bold strike and gorgeous iridescent color and luster. We have only handled a few of these over the years, but this is the nicest one we’ve had and one of the nicest we’ve seen. Note that the price record is $576,000 ( for the Pogue MS67)
