1867 Liberty Head $10 gold eagles are highly scarce coins, as few were originally made and far fewer survive to this day. 1867 also marks the first full year of production for the so-called “with motto” $10 gold coins, which have the phrase IN GOD WE TRUST above the eagle on the reverse of the coin. These classic old U.S. gold coins were designed by United States Mint Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht, who designed Seated Liberty coinage, which was struck from the late 1830s through early 1890s and remains popular with numismatists nowadays.
1867 $10 gold eagle coins contain 0.4806 ounces of gold and are purchased by bullion investors for their intrinsic metal content. More importantly though is the historic value of these coins, which are treasured as numismatic collectibles and worth far more than their gold content alone. Here’s a look at the 1867 Liberty Head gold eagle $10 coin mintage figures and values:
1867, 3,140 minted; $1,600
1867-S, 9,000; $2,400
*Values are for coins grading Very Fine 20.
It should be noted that the mintage figures above are actually much higher than the number of currently existing specimens of either issue. This is widely the case for all pre-1933 U.S. gold coins, including 1867 $10 gold eagle coins, which have been melted in huge numbers over the years.
