The $10 Liberty gold coin, for its day, was a piece that had an extremely large face value and was not as widely circulated as pennies, nickels, and dimes from the same era. With that said, these coins were still incredibly popular both back when they were in circulation and still today. Nowadays, collectors are eager to get their hands on these coins because they are become increasingly difficult to find.

When it comes to collectors, just any coin will not do. Rather, they prefer that the coins added to their collection are ones that are of the highest quality. Unfortunately, due to the fact that these coins were minted from 1838 to 1907, every last one of them is over 100 years old and has thus been subjected to any amount of wear and tear.

What You Will Pay for a $10 Liberty Gold Coin

Despite its $10 face value, these $10 Liberty coins are worth far more than that. The fact that they are made of gold means that their inherent value is dictated by the ever-changing value of spot gold. Gold being one of the more expensive metals to purchase, even the poorest preserved Liberties carry a value and price tag that is likely a bit more than what you might expect.

When it comes down to it, you can expect to pay no less than $500 for one of these coins. Not only are they rare, their inherent value in gold drives the price up even more. For versions of the coin that are particularly rare or difficult to come across, the price you are going to be asked to pay can exceed multiple thousands of dollars. Of course, these coins are typically reserved for experienced collectors with a lot of money to spend, but exist on the market nonetheless. As the condition of the coin improves, the price you are going to be asked to pay will increase dramatically because, like was said before, no collector desires to add a poorly preserved coin to their collection.

The Most Sought After $10 Liberty Gold Coins

The most sought after $10 Liberty coins are the ones that are in the best condition. Regardless of the year in which the coin was produced, every collector wants to get their hands on a well-preserved piece. Of course, it goes without saying that the better preserved a coin is, the more it is going to sell for; so you have to be careful when it comes to these coins.

Being that there were up to three different editions of the Liberty produced each year, you will notice that while one edition is extremely popular amongst collectors, another may not be so heavily sought after. The 1882C Liberty, for example, sells for prices that are much higher than its 1882 counterpart. The price discrepancy can typically be explained through the scarce number of coins on the market, but other factors also influence this as well. Some editions are so rare that an accurate price point is difficult to determine simply because the coin is worth whatever a person is willing to pay—and in the case of these coins that amount is almost always a lot.

The Future Value of $10 Liberty Gold Coins

It is impossible to say with any amount of certainty just how much a specific coin will cost 10 or twenty years down the road, but when it comes to the $10 Liberty, you can be assured that its price is not likely to decrease. Being that these coins are no longer being produced, there will only ever be fewer on the market, and with fewer coins comes higher asking prices. This is why we suggest that you do everything in your power to get your hands on these coins now as it is only ever going to get more expensive to acquire them, regardless of condition.
