Q. David Bowers brings his signature recipe of historical narrative, market analysis, and valuable advice for collectors and investors to the 24th volume in Whitman’s popular and award-winning Bowers Series of Official Red Books. The Guide Book of Gold Eagle Coins covers the United States’ golden $10 coins minted from the 1790s to 1933. These include some of the Philadelphia Mint’s earliest coinage, the famed Turban Head eagles of 1795 to 1804; the long-running series of Liberty Head eagles, minted for nearly 70 years from the 1830s to the early 1900s; and the innovative Indian Head eagles of 1907 to 1933.

This full-color reference includes a chronicle of the nation’s $10 gold pieces; an inside look at mints and the minting process; discussion of Proofs; advice on collecting gold eagles; tips on how to be a smart buyer; full-color illustrations; a coin-by-coin study, with market values, auction results, and other data; a selected bibliography; and more—all written in Bowers’s engaging and informative style.

This is a one-of-a-kind guide for forming a high-quality collection of gold eagles, and is a must-have for any gold coin collector.
