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.
