American Gold Eagle coins debuted in 1986 with all four weights of the coin available in that first year. The 1 oz coin proved the most popular throughout the first 15 years of availability from the United States Mint. However, at key points in history when the demand for gold rose, the 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle overshadowed the 1 oz coin.
The first time the 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle had a higher mintage figure was in 1999 in the midst of the Y2K crisis as gold surged higher. In that year, the 1/10 oz coin became the first fractional weight to outpace the 1 oz coin, surging to a final mintage that year of 2.75 million to just 1.5 million for the 1 oz coin. That is the highest mintage figure for any coin in the history of the series. More recently, the 1/10 oz coin outsold the 1 oz coin consecutively from 2014 to 2016.
On the obverse of 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle coins is Augustus Saint-Gaudens vision of Lady Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle. The reverse side of the American Gold Eagles includes the exclusive design of a family of American bald eagles created in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
These 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Coins earned a Mint State 69 certification from the PCGS or NGC. Considered near-perfect specimens, each one has full, original mint luster with a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. Those flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines.
