Nearly 1.7 million 1906 Liberty Head $10 gold eagles were made, a much larger output of these gold coins than had been produced in several years. 1906 also marks the first time that the Denver (D) mint would produce $10 gold eagles, meaning mints in four U.S. cities – Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, and Denver – would make Liberty Head gold coins in 1906.

While a large number of gold eagles were struck, many have since been melted down. However, none of the business-strike eagles from 1906 are considered rare. 1906 $10 gold eagle coins, which are popular with bullion investors, contain 0.4806 ounces of gold. Still, these classic gold coins are worth more as numismatic collectibles than as bullion coins and are therefore most commonly pursued by numismatists.

Here’s a look at the mintages and values of 1906 Liberty Head gold eagles:

  • 1906, 165,497 minted; $810

1906 $10 gold coins were originally designed by Chief Engraver Christian Gobrecht, who oversaw the production of many now-classic coin types at the United States Mint. In addition to 1906 Liberty Head $10 gold coins (which represents a type that was first minted in 1838), Gobrecht notably designed Seated Liberty coins, which were largely made during the late 1830s through early 1890s.
