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 coin s fail to surpass the demand for the smallest coin in the collection, which features the same brilliant design with a more affordable price.
Since 1986, the 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle has proven to be one of the most popular weights among the four available Gold American Eagles, which also include a 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz. Introduced two years after the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle in 1988, the largest mintage years for the 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle were the introductory 1988 release at 143,881 and 1990 at 99,349.
On the other hand, the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle has had lows in mintage like other weights and version of these popular gold coins. The lowest mintage years for the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle came recently in 2012 at 20,740 and 2013 at 21,742.
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 of the Gold American Eagle 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.
