Proof Gold American Eagle coins are the collector’s version of the nation’s official gold coin. The proof coins were introduced in 1986 alongside the bullion counterpart, but only available initially in 1 oz. The fractional-weight coins in the Proof Gold American Eagle weren’t introduced until 1987 in ½ oz, and 1988 in ¼ oz and this 1/10 oz weight.
These 1994-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are unique in that they’re the first fractional-weight coins in the proof series struck at the West Point Mint. From 1987/88 until 1993, all the fractional-weight coins were produced at the Philadelphia Mint, and featured a “P” mint mark.
