The Proof Gold American Eagle 1/10 oz weight is an annual favorite of collectors. The smaller format results in a lower premium over spot prices without any sacrifice in the purity of the gold or the beauty of the design. The 1/10 oz coin, like its fractional counterparts, comes with one of two possible mint marks when purchased through a random year listing such as this one.
1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins issued by the US Mint from 1988 to 1993 were produced by the Philadelphia Mint with “P” mint marks. Those coins issued from 1994 onward were struck by the West Point Mint with a “W” mint mark.
All of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins in this listing from Silver.com have PR69 certifications from the PCGS. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
The included DCAM label indicates the coins have a deep-cameo visual appearance. This means that the design elements have strong, frosted matte features and the background field of the coin is deeply-mirrored and clear.
On the obverse of all Proof Gold American Eagle Coins features Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ vision of Liberty. This design was the first in a long line of new American coin designs in the early 20th century. Completed in 1907, this design went into circulation just months after Saint-Gaudens’ died as a result of illness, meaning he never saw his creation in circulation.
The reverse of 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins bears a family of American bald eagles. Created by Miley Busiek in 1986, this imagery is found only on the Gold American Eagle series of coins from the US Mint.
