The Most Coveted $5 Indian Gold Coins
In reality, all $5 Gold Indians are coveted. Thanks to their relatively limited mintage, it is challenging to locate these coins in any condition. Undeniably, however, collectors always desire the most pristine coins above all others. Every collector wants to acquire beautiful, perfectly preserved coins for their collection, and those who desire these coins must pay the premium to have them. General circulation, however, makes finding a well-preserved $5 Gold Indian much easier said than done.
The 1909-O Indian, for example, is extremely valuable and expensive, regardless of the condition it is in. This coin is so scarce on the market that even the most poorly preserved examples can command over $3,000. The 1929 $5 Gold Indian is similar to the 1909-O, in that it is so rare it is desirable in any condition whatever.
