Money Metals Exchange is offering super-low premiums on pre 1933 2.50, $5, $10, and $20 pre 1933 US Gold coins that have come back to market. Buy gold today before its too late!

The $5 Indian Head gold coin was minted in 1908. It was one of the many coins produced by the order of President Theodore Roosevelt after he had attended a Greek coin exhibition at the Smithsonian. His inspiration for a more distinguishing design shines through with what many believe to be one of the most beautiful products in gold coins history.

These 90% gold coins are historic, constitutional money that once circulated in America. One might consider these coins as the gold equivalent to junk silver coins, that are basically worth their melt value. Money Metals offers a multitude of pre-1933 fractional gold for sale including the $10 and $2.50 Indian Head coin to name a few. Or the Gold Liberty Coin in the $2.50, $5, $10, and $20 versions.

These coins may be in polished or cleaned condition and are NOT slabbed or graded. Some coins may have extensive wear.


Native American (obverse) - Boston artist Bela Lyon Pratt sculpted a beautiful left facing profile of a Native American wearing a large headdress.

Eagle (reverse) - The reverse features a prominent image of a bald eagle. Below its feet lie a bundle of olive branches and arrows.

Please note that Money Metals would absolutely not be offering these types of US gold coins online if it were not for the attractive bullion-like premiums. Right now, these high purity coins for sale are super cheap, and whatever premiums that existed in the past have essentially evaporated.

To learn more about our $5 Indian Head coin, or any other pre-1933 US gold coins for sale like the 10 Dollar Gold Liberty coin, call Money Metals Exchange at 1-800-800-1865. We look forward to answering all of your questions.

Very pleased.

By Jacob C. on June 28th, 2021

Although the mark up is considerably higher than modern pieces with higher gold content, these coins are very appealing. My piece shows slight wear, ie, circulation, and it almost looks like I may have a piece that was counter stamped. All in all, I recommend MMX for this specimen.

Gold Glitters

By Jay H. on February 4th, 2021

I have been looking at these beautiful coins on the web site and they eventually sell out. I read all the reviews and they were positive. Here's my experience with this purchase at Money Metals. I ordered the coin over the phone with exceptional customer service provided. The advertisement on the web site depicts in a magnified view a high quality gold coin barely circulated. I was so impressed that when my coin arrived 3 days after I ordered it I found I was sent what would grade as an MS 62 approximately and was equal quality to the coin on the web site. The collectors value of this gold coin is diminished as the coin was polished but it actually looks much better than a non polished gold coin. BTW I shopped e-bay and other metals sites for pre-1933 gold Indian coins. None of them came close to matching the price I paid and I doubt the quality came close. I did my home work for months before making this purchase,.

Another little bit of history

An excellent specimen! Very sharp details. Must have spent very little time in circulation. Very satisfied with this purchase.
