Description

When it premiered in 1908, designer Bela Lyon Pratt's $2.50 Indian Head Gold Piece immediately sparked controversy. Many loved its 90% pure gold glory, but many objected to the use of incuse stamping (images sunken into the surface of the coin). Many have long been lost, but now The First Sunken Relief U.S. $2.50 Coin can be yours in a rare collecting opportunity. This coveted $2.50 coin was only minted until World War I interrupted production in 1915. It resumed in 1929, only to end forever with the Great Depression. Collectors and history buffs alike will want to bring home this coveted $2.50 sunken relief gold coin in a collector's presentation that is ONLY available from The Bradford Exchange Mint.

The First Sunken Relief U.S. $2.50 Coin will arrive secured in a crystal-clear, tamper-proof holder authenticated by the NGC (Numismatic Guaranty Corporation) with a handsome mahogany-finished deluxe wooden display box with a gleaming title plaque, specially designed to protect and showcase your coin for years to come. This magnificent coin's obverse side showcases a striking Native American in profile with a feather headdress, while the proud American eagle graces the reverse side, both captured in beautiful sunken relief. Minted in very small quantities, this rare $2.50 coin is truly becoming scarce, so don't miss your opportunity to claim a piece of coin collecting history. Order now!
