Product Description

American Gold Eagle Tenth oz

The American Gold Eagle Tenth oz is one of the most popular small bullion choices in the United States. In 1986, the United States Mint introduced the American Gold Eagle series, minted in four sizes (1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz and 1/10 oz).

From 1986 (MCMLXXXVI) through 1991 the US Mint dated the coins using Roman Numerals. From 1992 through the present traditional Arabic Numerals are featured. The front of the coin design is a depiction of Liberty taken from the famous $20 gold piece (1907-1933) designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The back features a family of nesting eagles and includes United States of America, E Pluribus Unum (from American Gold Eagle Tenth ozmany one), In God We Trust, weight (1/10 oz fine gold) and legal tender value ($5). 

The US Mint produces quantities of the American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz to ensure the series will retain its status as a bullion leader. The legal tender value is symbolic as the American Gold Eagle Tenth oz fluctuates directly with the price of gold.

The total US Mint production of the American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz between 1986 and 2007 was 10,433,757 coins. Between 2008 and 2014 the US Mint yearly production for the American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz was: 2008 (305,000) – 2009 (270,000) – 2010 (435,000) – 2011 (350,000) – 2012 (315,000) – 2013 (535,000) – 2014 (565,000).

As you can see the production numbers are significant and there are reasons for this popularity: (1) The US Gold Eagle appeals to a worldwide audience and outsells other 1/10 oz bullion gold coins within the United States. (2) The American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz is easy to buy and sell because dealers worldwide post daily buy and sell prices. (3) The American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz contains exactly 1/10 ounce of gold and is alloyed with a small amount of copper for durability. (4) The American Gold Eagle Tenth Oz is popular in the jewelry trade. (5) Original Mint tubes have black tops and contain 50 1/10 oz coins. These tubes are made of a pliable plastic; they easily lock and are virtually indestructible. (6) Unlike the Krugerrand (1 oz) or the Canadian Gold Maple Leaf (1 oz) the entire US Gold Eagle series is not reportable on Federal Form 1099B when the public resells.

    Best bid in town.
    You don’t have to buy from them to get the best bid, unlike other shops.
    Impossible to beat.

    Second Golddealer.com purchase; ten 1/10s this time and a few other American Eagle weights to make for another nice order. Great over the phone service; outstanding security for delivery ( signature required; not an optional ‘oh gee, just drop it on the doorstop’ type of FedEx / UPS delivery ), and more importantly; they were able to delay the shipment to accommodate some last minute military reserve orders.

    I do not believe I will become instantly wealthy with my purchase; but I am old enough and smart enough to be properly balancing my portfolio with quality bullion products so as to be able to advantage myself of whatever direction the markets take.

    Best prices on the net; no shipping, and the correctness of the product shows in its appearance and quality. /r/ Al
