The smallest coin available in the Proof American Gold Eagle Series has also proven to be the most popular in most years. The 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle debuted in 1988, two years after the program launched with a 1 oz coin in 1986. However, it proved popular from the start and dominated sales through the first 20 years. 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins are currently available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion in perfect condition.

From 1988 when it was first issued until 2008, the 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle was the best-selling coin among the four options in the collectible range of American Gold Eagles. The debut release of 143,881 coins in 1988 is the third-highest overall in the Proof Gold Eagle Series, and was nearly double the number of 1 oz coins sold that year.
It wasn’t until 2008 that the 1 oz gold coin would outsell its 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle counterpart. Though it is now bested by the 1 oz coin in most years, the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle remains only slightly behind its larger counterpart in annual sales each year. While its debut release was massively popular, the low point in mintage came in 2012 when just 20,740 coins were sold. 2012 marked low mintage points for both the 1 oz and 1/10 oz coins.
On the obverse of 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles is Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design of Liberty from the $20 Gold Double Eagle. The reverse side features Miley Busiek’s depiction of a male bald eagle flying over a family nest with a female guarding a hatchling.
