The $10 Liberty, also known to numismatists as the $10 Coronet type, displays a female portrait of Liberty on the obverse. She is depicted wearing a crown (hence the “Coronet” nickname) with the word “LIBERTY” displayed prominently. Thirteen stars (as a nod to the original thirteen American colonies) are engraved towards the periphery. The coin’s date appears at the bottom. This design was first introduced in 1838 and remained in production until 1907. As such, the $10 Liberty ranks among the longest-running coin designs in American numismatics.
The $10 Liberty reverse features an eagle with outstretched wings. The bird wears a shield and clutches arrows and an olive branch in its talons. This symbolized America’s interest in maintaining peace, combined with its ability to defend itself in war. Shortly after the Civil War, the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” was added above the eagle’s head; coins dated before 1866 will not show this inscription. The denomination is expressed as “TEN D.” and appears towards the bottom.
The $10 Liberty Eagle was one of the most commonly-used coins of 19th and early 20th centuries. It served as a mainstay of American commerce. Until the $20 Double Eagle was released in 1849, the $10 Eagle was the U.S. Mint’s highest denomination. Not only was the coin used by private individuals, but the $10 Eagle was also favored by banks and financial institutions for large transactions. Many governments, including those in Europe and South America, chose the $10 Liberty Eagle for their official sovereign reserves.
These $10 Liberty Eagles are in Almost Uncirculated (“AU”) condition, meaning that they show just the slightest signs of handling. They exhibit complete design detail, solid original mint luster, and excellent eye appeal. Many pieces have the overall look of Uncirculated or Mint State examples, but technically grade Almost Uncirculated due to the presence of some extremely minor wear. Collectors are drawn to AU coins since they have the appearance of a higher grade but are much more affordable.

" Provident just sent me an exchange on this coin and it is a nice, high end AU. The first coin I received was a bit sub-par (in my opinion). Provident sent me a return shipping label, and exchanged the coin without question. The staff was polite and very helpful. I've found Provident to be an A company to deal with over the years. I continue to recommend Provident as the online place to shop for precious metals."

" I like pre-1900 coins and was surprised to receive four Philadelphia minted coins dated 1882, two 1894"s and an 1897. All are AU+ with the 1897 deserving a BU rating. Provident always delivers quality coins."

" I received my 1901 gold eagle liberty head 10 days after I ordered with my credit card. 5 days to ship so it was within the 3-5 business days stated in the shipping guidelines. Am happy with the coin and will do business with Provident again. "
