$10 Indian Head was first introduced in 1907. The coin was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and it is rumored that the female portrait on the coin came from Saint-Gauden’s mistress. As his health failed, he was only able to draft two denominations of the coin, the $10 and the $20.
There are four different types of the $10 Indian Head gold coin. The first type, minted in 1907, has a wire edge. The second type, also minted in 1907, contains a rolled edge. The third type circulated from 1907-1908, and is the last to feature the “E. Pluribus Unum” motto. Finally, the fourth type circulated from 1908-1933 and it contains the motto “In God We Trust”.
