For the 115th Anniversary of the most beautiful American coin, Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, this Super Incuse Half Eagle Commemorative has been released. The incuse strike of the Indian Head Gold Half Eagle is the most innovative design from the Renaissance of American Coinage. Struck from ½ oz of .9999 pure gold, this commemorative medal honors both Augustus Saint-Gaudens and his protégé Bela Lyon Pratt. By combining the concept of the incuse design from Pratt’s Indian Head Half Eagle with Saint-Gaudens' Double Eagle design, this medal fuses the most beautiful design with the most innovative design. Master engraver John Mercanti recreated the design using Saint-Gaudens original plasters from the Saint-Gaudens National Historical Park. The super incuse design is so extreme that it could not have been made when Saint-Gaudens originally struck his famous Double Eagle in 1907.
