The 2002 release of Proof Gold Eagles was unique in a number of ways, but one of the surprise factors was the slow rebound of the popular 1/10 oz coin. The diminutive option in the series typically experiences the largest increases and decreases in mintage as demand for the collectible coins over time. Though it was still the most popular overall choice in 2002, it didn’t have the largest increase in mintage in this particular year. Right now, 2002 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to purchase online at Silver.com in perfect condition.
