The United States Mint has used maximum mintage limits on the Proof Gold American Eagle at various times in program history, with the first mintage cap set back in 1993. Since then, caps have come and gone, and will be very low for all four coins in the series for the release of the 2018 Proof Gold American Eagle coins.
Among the certified coins you’ll find available here today at Silver.com are a handful of the 22,000 total 2018-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles struck for the year.

On the obverse of the 2018-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin is the most iconic US coin design. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this Liberty depiction was the first of several that would come out during the 1910s as the federal government moved to modernize American coinage to match the growing international profile of the country. Liberty appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933.
The reverse of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin features the family of bald eagles from Miley Busiek. This design shows one adult eagle flying over the nest as another watches the hatchlings within the nest. On this side of the coin you’ll also find the “W” mint mark of the West Point Mint.
