History of American Eagle Gold Coin 1/10 oz

The 1/10 oz American Eagle gold coin is a part of the American Eagle gold coin program. The program was authorized by the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985 and launched by the United States Mint in 1986. Its goal was to provide investors and collectors with a secure way to acquire gold coins backed by the U.S. government.

The American Eagle gold coin showcases the famous Lady Liberty design on the front, which was initially created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 Double Eagle gold coin back in 1907. The back of the coin displays a family of eagles designed by Miley Busiek.

Unique Features of American Eagle Gold Coin 1/10 oz

The American Eagle gold coin is 16.50 mm in diameter, weighs 3.31 g, and consists of 91.67% pure gold.

Although a lower percentage of gold may appear to reduce the coin's value, including other metals enhances its durability. As a result, you don't need to be concerned about natural wear and tear on your coins.

The image of Liberty that has been featured on gold coins since 1986 is displayed on the front of the coin. This design was inspired by the "Double Eagle" $20 gold piece created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. On the reverse side is an image of an eagle holding an olive branch while flying over a nest with another eagle and some hatchlings.
