Each 2018 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Coin listed here today is in near-perfect condition from the PCGS. Coins with a Mint State 69 grade exhibit full, original mint luster, but also possess a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited however to minuscule hairlines or contact marks, which are found only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
First Strike, or FS, coins are those which were received by the PCGS within a certain timeframe for certification. In this case, the coins must arrive at the PCGS or an approved depository within the first 30 days of the release date set by the US Mint for 2018 Gold Eagles.
While the 1 oz gold coin in the Gold Eagle Series is typically the best seller, the 1/10 oz coin has enjoyed runs of popularity as well. When introduced in 1986, the 1/10 oz was the second most popular with a mintage of 912,609. During the Y2K scare, the 1/10 oz coin again was second best behind the 1 oz in 1998 with 1.344 million coins sold, and topped the 1 oz coin in 1999 with the highest mintage in American Gold Eagle history at 2.75 million. The 1 oz coin that year sold more than one million fewer with 1.505 million for a mintage.
On the obverse of American Gold Eagle coins you’ll find Liberty. This particular design features Liberty’s full figure as she strides toward the coin’s viewer, with the US Capitol Building visible in the distant background. This was created originally in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The reverse of all 2018 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle coins features a family of nesting bald eagles. Created by Miley Busiek in 1986, you’ll find a male eagle flying back to the nest with an olive branch while a female eagle guards the nest.
