Indian Head $5 Gold, Proof (1908-1915)
The $5 Indian series in proof is comprised of only eight coins, with mintages ranging from a low of 75 pieces for the 1915 to a high of 250 coins for the 1910. Obviously, all are rare. This series is similar to the $2 ½ Indians, being issued in matte and Roman finish proofs.
In Proof 65 or better condition, the rarest coins are the 1914 and 1915, with only seven coins of each date certified in Proof 65 or better. The 1909 and 1910 are also especially difficult to locate in gem condition.
