Prior to 1933, the United States Mint issued gold coins for use in circulation. The longest-running coin series in US history was known as the Gold Eagle, issued by the mint from 1795 to 1933 when the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt called an end to the gold standard and ceased issuing gold coins.

The Gold Eagle was the name for a $10 (USD) circulation gold coin issued by the United States Mint. The series was the most prominent circulation coin from the US Mint when it opened in 1795 and eventually evolved to include various other denominations. Each one was named based upon its face value in comparison to the Gold Eagle.
For example, the Quarter Gold Eagle had a face value of $2.50 while the Half Gold Eagle had a face value of $5. The famous Gold Double Eagle had a face value of $20, but it was the Gold Eagle which was issued for the longest period of time in the nations history.
On the obverse side of Pre-33 $10 Liberty Gold Eagle Coins is the left-profile portrait of Liberty with a coronet on her head that includes the word Liberty. There are 13 stars around her figure and a date of issue below her bust.
The reverse of $10 Liberty Gold Eagles includes one of the original designs of the US heraldic eagle. The American bald eagle is set behind the national shield clutching arrows and an olive branch in its talons. Christian Gobrecht, a Philadelphia Mint engraver, designed these images for the Liberty Gold Eagle coins in 1838. The reverse may or may not feature the In God We Trust banner above the heraldic eagle. Coins from 1838 to early 1866 do not have the motto, while coins from late 1866 to 1907 do have the motto.
