The Proof Gold American Eagle Coins returned to production in 2010 with a new pecking order. Since its introduction in 1988, the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle had outsold the 1 oz gold coin in the series every year. The first sign of change came as gold prices soared in the mid-2000s and the Great Recession set in.

The 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle first failed to surpass the 1 oz coin in 2008 when the demand for Proof Gold Eagles swooned as gold buyers sought the investment-grade bullion coin. From that point onward, the 1/10 oz coin has failed to reclaim the top spots in the minds of collectors. The 1 oz coin had a mintage 5,000 coins higher than the 1/10 oz in 2010. It wasn’t all bad news though. Like the other coins in 2010, the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle surged upward with an additional 26,169 coins issued.
All of the 2010 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins available to you here today come with a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins in PF70 condition showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws present anywhere on the coins. The ultra-cameo label included in the slab indicates the coins have strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
On the obverse of 2010 Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty. This iconic design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle, which bore the design until 1933. The reverse face of 2010 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles includes the family of bald eagles designed by Miley Busiek. Created in 1986, you’ll only find this design on the Gold American Eagle coinage.
