Throughout the first two decades of the Proof Gold American Eagle Series, the 1/10 oz coin remained the first choice of many collectors.

1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles had the lowest increase in mintage from 1999. The 2000 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin increased just over 1,500 coins to settle at 49,971 for the year. While this was the lowest increase among the four coins, it was still the highest overall mintage figure in the collection, achieving a mintage more than 14,000 coins higher than its closest counterpart, the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle.
All of these 2000 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins come to you with a PF70 certification from the NGC. Coins with this grade are considered perfect specimens with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The coins also have a UCAM designation, which stands for ultra-cameo. Each coni has strong, frosted design elements combined with deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
The obverse face of 2000 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles includes Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design of Lady Liberty. This impressive design originated on the $20 Gold Double Eagle and was the first of many coin designs on US coinage in the early 20th century to feature uniquely American elements.
On the reverse of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle, you’ll find the vision of American bald eagles. This design includes a nest with hatchlings guarded under the wing of a female eagle, while a male eagle flies overhead.
