Also created by Bela Lyon Pratt of Boston, Massachusetts he used the design of the Quarter Eagle for the “Indian Head” Half Eagles. Both denominations are the only United States Federal coins minted with the incuse design. A total of 14,078,976 Indian Head Half Eagles were minted between 1908 to 1929. No coins were minted between the years of 1917 and 1928.
Unlike the Indian Head $2.50 Quarter eagle, the Indian Head $5 Half Eagle series is a much more difficult set to build and is therefore not often attempted. It consists of 24 Business Strike coins and 8 Proofs, many of which are prohibitively rare in any uncirculated condition. Philadelphia minted coins for each of the 10 years represented in Business Strike and Proofs between 1908 and 1915. Denver minted Business Strike coins in 1908, 1909, 1910, 1911, and 1914. San Francisco minted 9 Business Strike coins between 1908 and 1916. New Orleans minted 1 Business Strike coin in 1909. These coins can vary widely in price depending upon grade, and are most often found in About Uncirculated-50 to Mint State-63 conditions.
