Pratt's coins included an intaglio Indian head with an eagle feather headdress. It is believed that the Indian depicted on the coin is inspired by a real life American Indian by the name of Chief Hollow Horn Bear of the Sioux Indian Tribe. He was the first real life Indian depicted on a US coin, while other Indian head coins of the past were artistically created.The reverse of the coin depicted a very realistic looking eagle perched on arrows and holding the olive branch. These two coins were being produced side by side with Augustus Saint Gauden's coins.
Pratt's coins could never match the legendary status of Saint Gauden's coins. Although, Pratt's coin designs were revolutionary, legendary and exceptional in their own way.
