The Proof Gold Eagles from the United States Mint include four options for collectors to purchase each year. The 1 oz gold coin is traditionally the most popular in this series, but the 1/10 oz gold coin has managed to outsell the 1 oz coin on a number of occasions, particularly when the price of gold surges. Now, 2020-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to you for purchase online at Silver.com.

All Gold American Eagles have 22-karat gold content. When it was issued in 1986, the Gold American Eagle was the purest gold coin the US had issued since 1834 and the first gold coin it had issued since the cessation of circulation gold coins in 1933. The 22-karat gold content of Gold Eagles consists of 91.67% gold by weight with 5.33% copper and 3% silver.
Proof Gold Eagles in the 1 oz weight have always been issued by the West Point Mint with a “W” mint mark, but the same cannot be said of the Proof Gold Eagles. When the 1/2 oz coin was introduced in 1987 and the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins in 1988, all three were produced by the Philadelphia Mint with “P” mint marks through 1993. In 1994, the West Point Mint took over the fractional-ounce coins as well.
On the obverse side of 2020-W Proof Gold American Eagles is Lady Liberty as designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This iconic vision of Liberty is considered the greatest coin design in American history and captures her figure in front-facing relief with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other.
The reverse face of 2020-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles features a family of American bald eagles in a design from Miley Busiek. Exclusive to this coin series at the US Mint, this design showcases a male eagle in flight over the nest as a female eagle cares for a young hatchling within the nest.
2020-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are housed individually inside of presentation cases and come with a US Mint Certificate of Authenticity. All of the proof coins have contrasting frosted designs and mirrored fields for visual brilliance.
