The Gold American Eagle may not be America’s purest gold coin, but there is little doubt that it is the nation’s most popular gold bullion coin. The gold eagle is struck in 22-karat gold each year with mintage levels determined by demand for the coin among numismatics. Its stunning design and the high standard for quality set by the US Mint make it a must-have coin for collectors and investors alike. Today, this 2015 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle coin is available from Silver.com with a MS70 grade from the Professional Coin Grading Service.

All Gold American Eagle coins are struck using gold sourced from within the United States. The coin was introduced in 1986 alongside its silver counterpart, creating an official bullion coin program for the federal government. Each year, Gold American Eagles are struck in three weights in addition to the 1/10 oz., which include 1 oz., ½ oz., and ¼ oz. weights. The 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle saw the highest mintage of any weight occur in 1999 when 2.75 million of the 1/10 oz. coins were struck.
These 2015 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Coins bear an MS70, or Mint State 70, grade from the PCGS. An MS70 grade is considered the highest possible grade for a coin, and indicates a perfectly struck coin. The Gold Foil Label included inside the sealed packaging of this coin displays the year of minting, weight, and grade of the coin, along with the name of the grading service.
On the obverse side of the Gold American Eagle is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ depiction of Lady Liberty. Saint-Gaudens was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt in 1907 to revitalize American gold coin design, but died before his depiction of Lady Liberty ever appeared on coins. The reverse side features sculptor Miley Busiek’s image of a family of nesting bald eagles.
The United States Mint strikes Gold American Eagle coins at the West Point Mint facility in New York. Bullion coins in the series have been struck in all four weights each year since the coin’s introduction in 1986.
