Indian Head half eagle
An Indian Head gold piece in the denomination five American dollars (a half eagle). The same design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens as the eagle and double eagle was originally to be used, but this design by Boston sculptor Bela Pratt was chosen instead. Struck from 1908 to 1916, and in 1929, the Indian Head half eagle is one of only two U.S. circulating coins with recessed (incuse) designs.Coin: United States Mint; photograph: Jaclyn Nash/National Numismatic Collection
