From its introduction in 1988 until 2008, the 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coin had outsold the other three coins in the collectible range of gold from the US Mint. However, following the Great Recession, the 1/10 oz coin did not maintain its position atop the heap. Today, 2016 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins are available to you with an NGC certification at JM Bullion.

For the 2016 issue of Proof American Gold Eagle Coins, the United States Mint removed mintage caps and household purchase limits on original sales. The 1/10 oz coin had no individual mintage cap and the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set was also available without a mintage cap on the coins.
Between 2012 and 2015, the Proof American Gold Eagle Coins all settled into a stable range reminiscent of the mid-1990s when the coins had relatively flat demand from one year to the next. The highest 1/10 oz mintage during this period came in 2015 at 26,769, while the lowest came in 2012 at 20,740.
All of the 2016 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles available to you here are perfect specimens. The NGC issues a PF70 certification to any coin with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The inclusion of a UCAM label means the coins have impressive visual brilliance which includes strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored backgrounds.
The obverse of the 2016 Proof American Gold Eagle bears the iconic design of Liberty from 1907. Created by Irish-American artist and sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the design was used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933.
On the reverse side of all 2016 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles is the image of American bald eagles. Created exclusively for the Gold Eagle collection in 1986 by Miley Busiek, this design includes a female sheltering a hatchling in the nest as a male flies overhead.
