Following a 10-year hiatus, Indian gold eagle production at the San Francisco Mint resumed in 1930, but output was anything but substantial.
Production totaled just 96,000 pieces, and for the most part, these were unneeded in daily commerce, and nearly the entire mintage was stored in bank and Treasury vaults where it remained when the gold confiscation order was enacted.
Garrett and Guth write in their Encyclopedia of U.S. Gold Coins: "Not many examples circulated, but enough were saved prior to the gold call-in of 1933 to satisfy collector demand.
In overall terms of rarity, this date ranks a little behind the 1920-S, with just a few hundred known in all, and those are scattered over the grading spectrum."
The scarcity of the 1930-S ten dollar increases substantially the further one travels up the grade scale, and in Gem condition, the date becomes a genuine rarity.
