Why purchase this Proof 70 Ultra Cameo 2017-W 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Proof $5 with a Mercanti signed label?

The 1/10 oz. American Gold Eagle is a mainstay in modern numismatics. Composed of .9167 fine (22-karat) gold, legal tender for $5, and with modern and classic U.S. coin designs, it makes a fine choice for anyone. Struck with a proof finish, and it becomes a fine choice for a collector.

Classic and modern coin designs

The obverse of the American Gold Eagle bears a design created over a century ago by famed designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Originally made for the so-dubbed "Saint-Gaudens" Double Eagle $20 gold piece, it depicts Liberty holding a torch and olive branch, with the rays of the sun rising behind her.

The reverse design was created for the American Gold Eagle series in 1986 by Miley Busiek. Meant to be symbolic of American freedom, it shows a male eagle in flight, about to join his family in their nest.
