The most popular coin in the Gold American Eagle coin series is the 1/10 oz. coin. In demand due to its perfect balance of size and value, the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle has recently overcome the 1 oz. coin in the series as the highest minted in the program. The US Mint strikes the coins each year based upon demand from investors and collectors. Right now, you have the opportunity to purchase a 2015 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle via Silver.com with an MS70 grade from the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation.
The NGC is one of the two strictest grading services around, meaning these Gold American Eagles have passed a certification test that lends immediate value to the coins. Each 1/10 oz. coin available in this listing has a Mint State 70 grade, the highest any coin can receive. There are no contact marks, flaws, blemishes, or hairlines visible on the surface of these Gold American Eagles, and each maintains its full, original luster.
As part of the 1st Day of Issue, First-10 Box series from the United States Mint, these 1/10 oz. coins won’t last long. These Gold American Eagles were produced during the first day of production at the West Point Mint facility, and shipped in sealed United States Mint packages as part of the first 10 boxes to leave the Mint for depositories.
On the obverse side of each Gold American Eagle is the image that revitalized American coinage in the early 19th century. Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty depicts a full-length figure of Lady Liberty striding forward as the sun rises in the background. The reverse includes a depiction of a family of nesting bald eagles, as well as engravings bearing the coin’s identifying features.
The vast majority of Gold American Eagle coins are struck by the United States Mint’s West Point Mint facility in New York. Each coin in the series, regardless of weight, is produced with .9167 gold. The 1/10 oz. coin has a face value of $5, which is representative of its fractional weight.
