Indian Eagle $10 - Roosevelt Commissions St Gaudens To Design The Coin
Indian $10

in 1904, Roosevelt decided that the previous inaugural medal produced for McKinley would be insufficient for him. Roosevelt, who was an avid art supporter, wanted his medal to be more than a simple portrait. He chose renowned American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who was in negotiations with the U.S. Treasury to make new designs for American coins. The medal received widespread acclaim, and Roosevelt commissioned Saint-Gaudens to design new coinage.
