U.S. gold coins, and particularly Indian Head varieties of the 20th century, are among the most popularly collected U.S. coins. There are good reasons for this popularity. First of all, the coins are undeniably beautiful, especially the sunken designs on gold $2.50s and $5s by Bela Lyon Pratt.

Another reason for their popularity is that all three series are relatively limited. In other words, it doesn’t take many different coins to form a complete collection. Unfortunately for collectors who desire set completion, the $5 Indian Head and the $10 Indian Head series contain multiple major stoppers. Indian Head gold $2.50s, by contrast, have only one stopper, and it, as gold key coins go, is readily attainable and affordable.

Published by Subterfuge Publishing, the book I’m reviewing this month is Indian Gold Coins of the 20th Century, by Mike Fuljenz. Fuljenz is a well-known coin dealer and the president of Universal Coin & Bullion, which is located in Beaumont, Texas.
