As a truly timeless collection, the American Gold Eagle Coin series is dedicated to honoring the patriotic values and roots that the United States is known for. This collection features bullion products with imagery and symbolism that help represent the United States as a country. The Philadelphia Mint was where the 1/10 oz fractional-weight coin was introduced, but production of this coin moved to the West Point Mint in 1994.


The image of Lady Liberty is shown on the obverse of the 1998-W Proof American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coin. This image was taken from the original Double Eagle design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, which was featured on United States twenty-dollar gold pieces between the years 1907 to 1933. For this 1998-coin, Lady Liberty strides forward with radiance, her hair blowing back behind her in the wind. In one hand, she holds a torch; the other hand grasps an olive branch.


An eagle family, designed by sculptor Miley Busiek, is shown on the reverse of the 1998-W Proof American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coin. In the image, a female eagle and the hatchlings wait in the nest while the male eagle flies overhead carrying an olive branch. Certain specs and details about the coin, including its weight, purity, and value, are also featured on this side of the coin.
