All of the 2017-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins in this listing have a perfect grade of PF70 from the NGC. Coins in this condition have full, original mint luster and feature no detracting flaws of any kind.
The Ultra-cameo finish on these coins, known as UCAM, indicates a coin with a strong, frosted finish on the design set and a deeply-mirrored, clear background field. These contrasting finishes create the illusion of the design floating above the coin’s surface.
No coin in the Proof Gold Eagle collection is more popular each year than the 1/10 oz gold coin. While the 1 oz coin occasionally outsells the 1/10 oz weight, the other two fractional-weight coins fail to surpass the demand for the smallest coin in the collection, which features the same brilliant design with a more affordable price.
1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles have dipped in demand from the late 2000s when annual mintage figures were between 40,000 and 50,000. However, since dropping to 20,740 in 2012, the 1/10 oz has been surging in each year since.
On the obverse of the coin is the image of Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Considered the finest coin design in American history, this depiction of Liberty shows her in full-length figure with her hair flying in the wind as she leads the nation from the capital city with her torch as a guiding light.
The reverse features the family of nesting bald eagles created by Miley Busiek. Her design was created in 1986 and is used exclusively on the reverse of the Gold American Eagle coin.
