When it comes to the coin with the highest mintage in any given year, the Proof Gold Eagle Series is often a contest between the 1 oz gold coin and the 1/10 oz gold coin. The 1 oz gold coin offers the largest surface area upon which to view the impressive designs the US Mint features on the coins, while the 1/10 oz gold coin is the most affordable option by weight.
The 1 oz gold coin holds the mintage record in the Proof Gold Eagle Series with a total of 446,290 coins sold in 1986 when it debuted. The 1987 release of the 1 oz gold coin is the second-highest in the programs history, followed by the 1988 debut of the 1/10 oz gold coin with the third-highest mintage all-time.
Lady Liberty features on the obverse of 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagles in a design created back in 1907. Designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty is a front-facing bust in which she walks toward the viewer holding up a torch to light the way and carrying an olive branch of peace in the other hand.
American bald eagles are found in the reverse design of the 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle. This image of the bald eagle is exclusive to the Gold Eagle Series and was created specifically for this program in 1986 by Miley Busiek. This is the last date mark that will bear the family of bald eagles design as the US Mint will replace the image on all coins in this series starting midway through the 2021 release schedule.
These 2021-W 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins are available to you for purchase in perfect condition. PR70 coins showcase full, original mint luster and present with no detracting flaws. The DCAM label points to the strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. First Strike coins are those received for grading during the 30-day period immediately following release from the US Mint.
