A Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins

Foreword by Douglas Winter

The $10 gold eagle coin, named for the national bird depicted on its reverse, was created in 1795 to be the foundation of America’s federal monetary system.

Used primarily in international and large-scale transactions—or melted for its gold content—in its own time, today the gold eagle entices collectors with its beauty, value, and colorful history, from gold rushes and the 1933 “bank holiday” to sunken treasures and the collections of a king.

Author Q. David Bowers dives deeply into that history in A Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins, providing the political and economic backdrop for the gold eagle’s use throughout its lifespan. The second edition also features a wealth of up-to-date information for anyone who collects or appreciates $10 gold eagle coins, including full-color images, estimated surviving populations, recommended collecting grades, auction records, market values, buying advice, and commentaries on every coin from 1795 to 1933.

    GOLD EAGLE COINS. 2nd Edition 2020

    Posted by JOHN WYKRETOWICZ on 8th Mar 2021

    Good detailed data with miscellaneous comments. I think a rarity rating within each $10 gold series (liberty, Indian, etc.) would be very helpful to the reader. Better yet, a rarity ranking within each gold series by mint (Carson City, Philadelphia, etc.) would be the icing on the cake.
