Among the four weights of Proof American Gold Eagle available to those who buy gold, the 1/10 oz coin suffered the most severe drop in mintage figures throughout the late 1990s. The 1/10 oz coin saw its mintage drop from a stable range of about 63,000 coins in the early 1990s to a low of 34,000 coins in 1997. By 2000, the 1/10 oz coin had rebounded with the other weights, but still had room to grow. The 2000 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is currently available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion in perfect condition.

The 2000 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle saw increased mintage for the new issue, just like all three other available weights. While the 1/10 oz coin is accustomed to outperforming its counterparts, the rise in demand for the 2000 issue was rather modest and on par with the 1 oz, 1/2 oz, and 1/4 oz coins. The 2000 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle rose just over 1,500 coins from the prior year.
Given the 1/10 oz coin entered the decade of the 1990s with mintage figures hovering just below 100,000, the total of 49,971 coins to finish the decade was a bit of a disappointment. However, it did mark a steady increase in demand as the 1/10 oz coin was the only option in the series to increase starting in 1998 when the other coins were still in declining demand.
On the obverse of the 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coin is the image of Lady Liberty. This coveted design originally appeared on the $20 Gold Double Eagle Coin and was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The reverse side of all 2000 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins features the design of American bald eagles. This imagery includes the depiction of a male eagle in flight over the nest as a female guards the hatchlings within.
These 2000 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins have perfect PF70 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition maintain full, original mint luster with a complete lack of detracting flaws. The UCAM label is reserved for those coins with strong, frosted designs overlaying deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
