Without question, the 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coin has been the most popular weight in the series since its introduction. The lightest coin in the American Gold Eagle collection, these stunning products offer a beautiful design in an affordable package because the lower weight means less gold content in total compared to the other three coins.

American Gold Eagle coins feature the same obverse and reverse designs each year. The obverse design of Liberty from Augustus Saint-Gaudens is widely regarded as the finest American coin design of all time. It features a full-length figure of Liberty walking from Washington DC into the future, with her torch as a guiding light.
When the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle was introduced, it immediately surged above the 1 oz coin in popularity and demand. First-year mintage for the 1/10 oz coin was nearly double that of the 1 oz coin, and to this day it remains neck-in-neck with the 1 oz coin in the race for the affections of collectors of the American Gold Eagle series.
On the obverse of the 2017 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles is that image of Liberty from Saint-Gaudens. He was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt directly to revitalize American coinage, creating this Liberty design in 1907 for use on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin.
The reverse side of the American Gold Eagle coin features an image of a male bald eagle flying over the family nest. He clutches an olive branch in his talons, while the female is featured below standing guard over the nest and vigilantly watching the hatchlings within. Busiek created this design in 1986 specifically for the American Gold Eagle.
The 2017-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins in this product listing arrive inside of the original United States Mint display box. Each box has a brown velvet cover and satin lining, with a Certificate of Authenticity included with purchase. There is no mintage limited on Proof Gold Eagles from the US Mint.
