1/10 Oz Gold Coin Design

Gold Eagle Coins are recognized everywhere as one of the world's most popular coins - particularly in the affordable gold tenth-ounce size. American Eagles are available in various precious metal options such as silver coins, gold coins, platinum coins, and palladium coins. American Eagle designs are even sometimes included on other metal products. American Eagle coins are available in a number of different denomination sizes, including the classic one-ounce ($50 face value), half-ounce ($25 face value), quarter-ounce ($10 face value), and tenth-ounce ($5 face value). Each of the denominations of American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins is minted by the US Mint at either the Philadelphia Mint or West Point Mint locations.

Although these coins have a government-stamped face value, their market value is worth much more. Most of the American Gold Eagle coins are not prized for a collectible numismatic investment but instead are worth their weight in gold. Whether buying or selling American Eagle gold bullion coins, they are primarily purchased for the amount of fine gold they possess and act as a store of value while they equally hedge against inflation and maintain wealth. It's always a good idea to check gold spot prices, premiums, and customer reviews before conducting a transaction, buying or selling your American Gold Eagle coins to ensure you get what you pay for.

The Striding Liberty artwork, also known as Lady Liberty, was first created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the 1907-1933 double eagle gold bullion coin that can be purchased on Money Metals. Collectors and investors alike appreciate the iconic image and have maintained its vast popularity since its reproduction with the classic American Gold Eagle. This classic American coin highlights the liberty, strength, and success of the United States.

The striking, robed, Lady Liberty on the obverse (heads) holds the torch of liberty aloft in one hand and the olive branch of victory in the other, as originally designed by artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Lady Liberty is surrounded by 46 stars, and behind her is Washington D.C., emitting 27 sun rays.

Pre-2021 type 1 designs by Miley Busiek have a family of bald eagles adorning the reverse (tails)- protecting their young hatchlings in a nest. It is a stunning and iconic design, generally considered to be among the most beautiful of United States Mint coins. Late-to-Post-2021 type 2 designs by Jennie Norris have a close-up side profile of an American bald eagle that symbolizes freedom and power.

Included with the American Bald Eagle on the newer obverse design (tails) are the words “United States of America,” “1 OZ. Fine Gold ~ 5 Dollars,” “E Pluribus Unum,” and the motto, “In God We Trust.”

Each brilliant uncirculated (BU) U.S. Mint gold American eagle 1/10 Troy ounce coin carries a legal tender currency face value of $5 U.S. dollars. Additionally, coins are marked with gold content - 1/10 oz fine gold. Though the coins contain a full tenth oz of gold, the purity is 22k with 91.67% pure gold, 3% silver, and 5.33% copper alloy. Although these gold coins have less fine gold than many gold bars, the American Gold Eagle qualifies for a self-directed precious metals Individual Retirement Account (IRA) and can be stored in the Money Metals Depository.

The total coin weight of the American Gold Eagle is 3.393 grams, although the actual gold content is only around 3.11 grams. The gross weight of each coin is slightly heavier than 1/10 oz because the gold is alloyed with a bit of copper and silver. Every coin's weight and purity are assured by the US Mint. You can purchase these American Mint gold coins from Money Metals Exchange!

The 1/10 ounce is the smallest size among the fractional Gold Eagles minted. The diameter is 16.5 mm or 0.6496063 inches. Investors choose this close-to-dime-sized coin to diversify their gold holdings (a US dime has a diameter of 17.91 mm and a weight of 2.268 grams). Many believe smaller coins like these will command a significant premium should gold prices move much higher. The day may come when larger 1 oz gold bullion coins are simply unaffordable for many people, raising demand for fractional-sized coinage.

Buying 1/10 ounce American Gold Eagle Coins

The 1/10-ounce size is also popular among preparedness-minded stackers who want American gold Eagles and coins suitable for barter if needed. One-ounce gold coins for sale may be impractical for use in smaller transactions where it would require the counter-party to make lots of changes.

Buyers can be confident that any 1/10th oz Gold Eagles purchased today will be in high demand whenever the time comes to sell. Dealer bid prices for these coins are generally the highest pricing among all fractional sovereign coins because they always sell quickly, so they have high liquidity.

These coins make a fine and memorable gift. Ask about our options for encapsulating them in an Air-Tite capsule - a clear, hard plastic case that is round in shape. Larger quantity orders may come in the packaging of a single tube, mint tubes, a box, or monster boxes for added protection and to maintain the good condition of your precious metal coin collection portfolio investment. This protects your items and everything from shipping through delivery, and thereafter, which ensures that your products are delivered without any issues.

Alternatives to the 1/10 ounce American Gold Eagles

Alternative investment products within a similar budget range as the American Gold Eagle to also consider include the Austrian Mint Gold Philharmonic coin, the Australian Perth Mint Gold Kangaroo coin, the Royal Canadian Mint Gold Maple Leafs coins, the British Royal Mint Queen's Beasts gold coins, Mexican Mint Libertad gold coins, or South African Mint gold Krugerrands. Other precious metal items and products may include a fractional gold bar, gold ingots, gold rounds, investment-grade gold bullion jewelry, or silver items such as silver coins, junk silver, silver bars, silver ingots, or silver rounds. American Silver Eagles are also a great option.

If you have any questions (FAQ) about the 1/10th ounce gold coin type-2 design, other sizes of the American Eagle gold coins, American Silver Eagles, gold bars, gold rounds, gold ingots, or other gold coins to buy online or over the phone, or other metal investment products, you should call Money Metals Exchange directly at 1-800-800-1865 to inquire about the current American Gold Eagle price and product availability and/or to place an order.

    First Gold Coin
    Until purchasing this 1/10 oz Gold Eagle, I only purchased gold gram bars. I have been stacking them for a couple of years. I felt like I needed an actual coin other than my silver coins. I am very happy with the purchase. It is amazing that this dime sized coin is worth around $250. Looking forward to it gaining in price thanks to Federal Reserve printing scam.

    Reading some other customer reviews that this coin is the first time buyers choice for beginning a gold portfolio. For me, it wasn't that I was trying to start a gold portfolio so much as I'm a firm believer of the beauty and quality of Morgan Silver dollar and all the silver dollars before it and after it. Except for the 1 dollar gold coin, not that I think its ugly, it's just to me it doesn't hold up the dignity of any American silver dollar. To be clear I'm not referring to the Eagle or Double Eagle. Wow, the eagle is a beautiful coin. What I can't get over is the ease and quality and fast shipping Money Metals deals out to its customers, Thanks Money Metals.
