Why buy this 1/10 oz. 2016-W Gold Proof American Eagle

This 1/10 oz. Proof American Gold Eagle bears the Mint mark of the West Point Mint, a “W.” It is backed by the United States government for both weight and purity.

Who designed the Gold American Eagle and what does it represent?

The American Gold Eagle’s obverse bears the famous St. Gaudens design that made its debut on the famed double eagle. Liberty, long the personification of the United States on coinage, holds an olive branch for peace off to her side and her torch high. The sun’s rays make for a truly iconic background that has long been admired by collectors. On the reverse is the design of Miley Busiek. A male eagle, America’s national bird, is depicted returning to its nest, where its mate guards their young.

What does GEM Proof mean?

Though not an official grade, the designation “GEM Proof” means that a coin is in mint state, retains attractive luster, and depicts an above average strike. Even so, noticeable marks, such as hairlines, may be present.

This 2016-W $5 1/10 oz. Proof American Gold Eagle is a small but beautiful piece that can be a prized part of your collection, so place your order with MCM today.
