The Most Sought-After Indian $2.50 Coins
Several Gold Indian Quarter Eagles are considered particularly desirable by collectors, but a few examples are coveted above all others. As we examine this point, it is important to understand that certain editions of the $2.50 Gold Indian were struck in a few different types. Make sure you know exactly which piece interests you and exactly which piece is being offered for sale when you are looking to buy. For example, there were two different iterations of the $2.50 Indian minted in 1914, and though they bear the same year, their values are markedly different.
If you seek the rarest and most valuable of these coins, look for those produced in 1911. These coins are available to contemporary collectors in extremely limited numbers and are quite valuable. Acquiring a 1911 $2.50 Indian is generally in the purview of an experienced collector with significant resources to devote to their collection.
