    <br><br>US $ 5 with a picture of an Indian (English Half Eagle Indian Head) – US gold coins of 5 dollars, which were minted from 1908 to 1929. The obverse of the coin features the head of an Indian, and the reverse features a bald eagle, the symbol of the United States. The image on the coin is not convex, but depressed.<br>Story<br>The coin replaced the $ 5 Liberty coin, which had been minted for 60 years.<br><br>The design change took place during the presidency and with the consent of Theodore Roosevelt, who, on the advice of his friend Biglow, decided to make a change in the design of the coin.<br><br> by the Boston sculptor Bela Pratt, the coin differed from all its predecessors in that the elements of the image on it were not convex, but, on the contrary, embossed. This change had both positive and negative sides. The „pluses“ include the fact that the embossed image was practically not erased during the circulation of the coin, in contrast to the convex one. The coin could be in circulation much longer. The main disadvantage was the accumulation of dirt in the elements of the image. It deprived the coin of aesthetic appeal and could be a source of transmission of infectious diseases. The $ 2.5 and $ 5 Indian coins are the only US coins that are not embossed, but embossed.<br><br>The coin was minted from 1908 to 1916, and then after a break of 13 years in 1929. The termination of the issue of coins of this type was associated with the stock market crash of 1929 and the Great Depression that followed. A relatively small amount of gold that entered the mints was used to mint $ 20 coins. The US abandonment of the gold standard led to the termination of the release of gold coins for wide circulation.<br><br>The coin was minted at the mints of Philadelphia, Denver, San Francisco and New Orleans. The origin of the coin is indicated by the letter to the left of the fascia bundle on the reverse:<br>„D“ – Denver„O“ – New Orleans„S“ – San Francisco – PhiladelphiaImage<br>The design of the coin completely repeats (except for the denomination) a similar $ 2.5 coin.<br>Obverse<br>The obverse of the coin depicts a bust of an Indian, flanked by 13 stars (according to the number of the first states). Above there is a semi-circular inscription „LIBERTY“, below the designation of the year of manufacture.

At the top there is a semicircular inscription „UNITED STATES OF AMERICA“, and on the sides there are slogans „E PLURIBUS UNUM“ and „IN GOD WE TRUST“.
