I wanna fly like an eagle

To the sea Fly like an eagle Let my spirit carry me I want to fly like an eagle 'Till I'm free ( Steve Miller Band)

The Native American Head Half Eagle $5 gold coin was first minted in the early 1900s, and did not stay in production for all that long. Having their production ceased in 1929, the $5 gold coin was in production for barely 20 years, meaning that there really aren’t all that many on the market.

During its time being produced, the $5 gold coin was one with an extremely high face value. Back then, $5 had a significantly stronger purchasing power which means that even when they were being circulated they were not able to be acquired by everyone. That much remains true today as the quantities of these coins on the market are diminishing with each passing year.

In 1909, the Native American Head Half Eagle gold coin was in its second year of production, and was widely popular with the public. The coin, which was designed by Bela Lyon Pratt, replaced the Liberty Head half eagle that had run from 1839 to 1908, one of the longest running U.S. coin designs at that time. The Native American Head half eagle gold coins weigh in at 8.359 grams, and they are made from 22k gold.
