Gold Eagle coins from the United States Mint come in four weights, the largest of which is the 1 oz gold coin and the smallest of which is the 1/10 oz gold coin. For more than half of the years in which the Proof Gold Eagles have been issued, the 1/10 oz gold coin was the best-selling weight among the four.

Through the first three years of issue in the Proof Gold Eagle Series, the 1 oz gold coin was the most popular coin in two of the three date marks. However, the 1986 release had only the 1 oz coin available and in 1987 the 1/2 oz coin’s debut was met with interest that pushed its mintage to within 4,000 coins of the 1 oz gold coin. The 1988 debut of the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins saw the smallest coin sell nearly double the number of 1 oz gold coins. For the next two decades, the 1/10 oz gold coin was the top seller each year.
All of these new 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to you with a perfect certification from the PCGS. Coins in PR70 condition have full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws of any type. The coins listed here also have a deep-cameo label, or DCAM. This special designation is for proof coins only and points to an enhanced visual brilliance in the cameo proof appearance. In particular, the design element is strong and frosted while the background field is deeply-mirrored and clear.
On the obverse of 2021-W Proof Gold Eagles is Lady Liberty. Augustus Saint-Gaudens created this design in 1907 for the US Mint and it was originally used on the Gold $20 Double Eagle Coin until 1933. It features Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks holding up a torch in her right hand and extending her left hand to clasp an olive branch.
The reverse face of the 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle comes with the design of a family of bald eagles. Struck on the coins for the final time in 2021, this vision shows a male eagle flying back to the nest with a branch in its talons as a female eagle offers shelter to a hatchling under her wing.
