1904 Liberty Head $10 gold eagles were made in rather small numbers and produced at only the Philadelphia and New Orleans mints. Making matters even tougher for coin collectors is that even fewer of these coins survive today. That’s because many of these old gold coins have been melted down for their precious metal content – a situation that affects virtually all pre-1933 U.S. gold coins. 1904 $10 gold eagle coins contain 0.4806 ounces of gold, but they are numismatic collectibles and worth considerably more than their bullion value alone.

1904 $10 gold coins were designed by Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht, who oversaw the production of many now-classic coin designs at the United States Mint. In addition to the 1904 Liberty Head $10 gold coin, which was first released in 1838, Gobrecht notably designed Seated Liberty coins, which were largely made during the late 1830s through early 1890s.

Here’s a breakdown of the mintages and values of 1904 Liberty Head gold eagles:

  • 1904, 162,038 minted; $810

  • 1904-O, 108,950; $850

  • 1904 proof; $46,000

*Values are for coins grading Very Fine 20 unless otherwise noted.

1904 Liberty Head gold eagle coins are quite scarce today, and it’s therefore advisable to buy only certified specimens to help prevent the accidental purchase of counterfeit coins. Those who still prefer buying “raw,” or unslabbed, 1904 $10 gold coins should seek the assistance of a professional, reputable coin dealer.
