Following the 2006 release of Proof Gold American Eagles, the 1/10 oz coin in the series would outsell the 1 oz and all other coins in only one more year. Collectors were increasingly turning toward the 1 oz coin heading into 2006, and by 2008 the 1 oz coin would become the annual first-choice option for collectors.
All of these 2006 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins feature a certification from the NGC. A PF70 certification is known as a perfect grade and indicates the coins have full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws visible on the design sets or surface areas.
The ultra-cameo label included with your purchase points to the beautiful visual finish of the coins. A UCAM coin has strong, frosted designs sets that contrast with the deeply-mirrored, clear background field.
On the obverse side of 2006 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin is a design of Liberty that was first used in 1907. Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907, this image was the leading artwork in a revolution of American coin designs that took place throughout the first two decades of the 20th century.
The reverse face of 2006 Proof Gold Eagle Coins bears an exclusive design found only in the Gold American Eagle series. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, the image of American bald eagles found here includes a male eagle flying over the family nest which holds a female eagle guarding a young hatchling.
