The smallest fractional-ounce gold coin you will find in the precious metals market is the 1/10 oz gold coin. The vast majority of major sovereign collections offer a 1/10 oz gold coin as the smallest option. Though smaller fractional-ounce coins exist, none are as common across collections and mints as the 1/10 oz gold coin.
Affordability drives the popularity of 1/10 oz gold coins. When gold prices surge, 1/10 oz gold coins instantly become an affordable alternative for buyers. For example, when demand for American Gold Eagles peaked in 1999 during the Y2K crisis, the 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle set a program record with more than 2.75 million coins sold, doubling the volume of the 1 oz gold coin that same year.
When it comes to shopping for 1/10 oz gold coins, you will find that many of the world’s major sovereign collections offer 1/10 oz gold. This includes the American Gold Eagle, Canadian Gold Maple Leaf, Mexican Gold Liberty, British Gold Britannia, Austrian Gold Philharmonic, Australian Gold Kangaroo, and the Australian Gold Lunar Series coins.
