The American Gold Eagle Coin collection is a timeless series that has been dedicated to honoring the patriotic values of the United States. The symbolism and imagery used on the bullion products from this series have always been used to represent the U.S. as a country. The West Point Mint took over the production of 1/10 oz fractional-weight coins in the American Gold Eagle series from the Philadelphia Mint in 1994.
The obverse of the 1998-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows the image of Lady Liberty, which was inspired by Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ original Double Eagle design that is known for being featured on twenty-dollar gold pieces from the United States between 1907 and 1933. In the image, Lady Liberty is shown striding forward with her long hair flowing back behind her in the wind. She holds a torch in the air with her left hand, while her right hand grasps an olive branch.
The reverse of the 1998-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows a family of eagles, which is a design that was originally created by Miley Busiek. In the image, a male eagle flies overhead carrying an olive branch in its talons. The female eagle and hatchlings wait patiently in their nest for the male’s arrival. Certain specs of this 1998-coin are also shown on the reverse, including its weight, value, and purity.
