The mintages for the Indian Head Gold Eagle series range from a low of 30,100 to a high of more than 4 million. Production would take place at the Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco Mint. In the earlier years of the series, sometimes eagles were struck at all three facilities, but in the later years, production was typically confined to only one facility.
As with other gold coin series of this era, the original mintage is often greatly impacted by the extent of circulation, the existence of hoards in European banks, and most importantly the mass meltings after the recall of federal gold in 1933. These factors often result in seemingly common issues becoming quite rare, or in the case of surviving hoards, seemingly rare issues becoming relatively common.
A few cases in point are the 1920-S Indian Gold Eagle, which had a relatively high mintage but saw heavy circulation and melting, and the 1933 Indian Gold Eagle, which was struck in high quantity but recalled and melted after only a few coins were released.
