1/10 oz. Gold Eagles

In 1985, the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 was passed and an official gold bullion coin of the United States was declared - the American Gold Eagle. According to this Act, the American Gold Eagle could only be struck using gold mined in the United States and refined to .9167 fine gold with a balance of copper. The U.S. Mint proceeded to strike the first American Gold Eagles in 1986, where they were issued in 4 different sizes: $50 1 oz., $25 1/2 oz., $10 1/4 oz., and $5 1/10 oz.

What is the size of the 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle?

The 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle has a diameter of 16.5 mm and a thickness of 1.19 mm.

Obverse design of the 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle

The coin itself carries a classic design on its obverse – Augustus Saint-Gauden’s design from the 1907 Double Eagle! The inclusion of this American classic brought the gold bullion series plenty of popularity from collectors who enjoy its eye appeal. As well, the classic design serves as a firm link to earlier American gold coinage.

Reverse design of the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle

The reverse design is an entirely new creation from U.S. sculptor Miley Busiek that shows a male eagle landing in his nest, among his family. This stunning design symbolizes the freedom of Americans, through our national animal – the Bald Eagle.

1/10 oz. American Gold Eagle Finishes

This coin was only issued with a business strike in 1986 & 1987, but in 1988 for the first time a version of the 1/10 oz. $5 American Gold Eagle was struck using a collector’s mirrored Proof finish. This stunning new coin was an instant hit among collectors, and sets were soon accumulated. Then in 2006, this coin was released with a special burnished finish. Despite the excellent appearance of the coins with this finish, the U.S. Mint stopped issuing $5 1/10 oz. burnished Gold Eagles in 2008 and have not struck any since.

1/10 oz. Gold Eagle Purchase Options

The high quality struck onto these coins by the U.S. Mint is reflected on the grades assigned to them by 3rd party grading companies. While you might expect fine details and lack of blemishes to be an issue with a coin this small, $5 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagles graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) make 70’s very frequently!
