The Proof American Eagle Gold series remains one of the most popular coinage sets to ever be produced by the United States Mint from its initial inception in 1986. Every year, they are available in four weights, including the 1/10 oz gold option. This is a wise investment choice for investors and regular collectors alike, due to the high rise in gold prices and the optimal value they yield with time. It is a great option if you are looking for a new precious metal to add to your portfolio of hard assets because of its historic relevance and limited mintage numbers!


For the obverse fields of the 1996-W Proof American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coin, you will find the Lady Liberty design. It depicts a beautiful woman wielding a flaming torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other while she walks away from the Washington D.C capitol in powerful strides that showcase her confidence and beauty all in one. This was created by the renowned American engraver, Augustus Saint Gaudens.


The reverse field of the 1996-W Proof American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coin features the stunning depiction of a family of American bald eagles resting in their nest. The powerful father figure flies overhead in windy skies. It was designed by Miley Busiek, a prolific sculptor who has gone on to have a wide range of iconic, original works. The coin also contains multiple inscriptions including the mint year, weight, and purity.
