United States $10.00 Liberty Head Eagle 1838-1907


Due to a sharp rise in the price of gold (brought on by the turmoil created by The Napoleonic Wars and Bonapart’s “Reign of Terror”) President Thomas Jefferson ordered that the production of $10 gold coins be halted on December 31, 1804. It would be 34 years and 2 Acts of Congress (altering both weight and fineness of United States gold coinage) before production would resume.
