When you purchase a 2008 American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coin in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a coin that is housed in an individual protective plastic flip. The coins in 2008 hit a one-year high with a mintage of 305,000 coins. This was the highest mintage in the series between 2000 and 2009. The mintage in 2000 was 569,153 coins, but the mintage figures went into a tailspin for several years afterward and would not recover to a level near that of the 2000 release until 2010. The 2008 issue was the highest between 2001 and 2009.


Lady Liberty is on the obverse side of the 2008 American Eagle Gold Coins. This design was created for the $20 Double Eagle Gold Coin in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and features the full-length figure of Liberty in front-facing relief as she walks toward you. She holds up a torch in her right hand while carrying an olive branch in her left. The U.S. Capitol Building is visible at her feet, rays of sunshine emerge from the horizon behind her, and a ring of 50 stars encircles the field. Inscriptions on this side read LIBERTY and 2008.


American bald eagles are shown in the reverse design of 2008 American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coins. The design shows a male eagle in flight with a female eagle and hatchlings sheltering in the nest. Inscriptions on this side of the coin include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and 1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD 5 DOLLARS.


American Eagle 1/10 oz Gold Coins hold the single-year record for mintage in the history of the American Eagle Gold Series. In 1999, the 1/10 oz gold coin hit a high of 2.75 million coins. This figure is 1.25 million coins higher than the second-highest mintage in the series, the 1999 1 oz gold coin.
