The 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle holds the third-highest mintage figure in the history of the Proof Gold Eagle. The 1988 debut of the 1/10 oz Proof Gold American Eagle resulted in total sales of 143,881 coins. This is behind only the 1986 and 1987 issues of the 1 oz Proof Gold Eagle. The only other release in the series to surpass 100,000 coins in a single year was the 1987 debut of the 1/2 oz Proof Gold American Eagle.
The obverse face of 2021-W Proof Gold American Eagle features an iconic image of Lady Liberty. This bust of Liberty showcases her figure in front-facing relief as she walks away from Washington D.C. holding up a torch in her right hand and clutching an olive branch in her left hand. Rays of sunshine extend from the horizon with a circle of 50 stars surrounding the entire design element.
On the reverse field of 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles is the image of a family of American bald eagles. In this design, a female and her young hatchling rest in the eagle’s nest as a male eagle flies overhead. The US Mint has plans to replace this original design in 2021, but the switch over to the new image of an American bald eagle is not set to occur until after the midpoint of the calendar year.
