In 2010, the Proof American Eagle Gold Coins were in high demand after taking a year-long hiatus. The 1/2 oz surpassed the 1/4 oz in popularity among collectors for the first time since 1991. Buyers can purchase the 2010 Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coin in perfect condition from Provident Metals.
The Proof Gold American Eagle collection is a favorite among collectors. The 1/10 fell in the ranks as highest in demand when the coins returned in 2010. The 2010 Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins had their highest mintage since 1995 when the U.S. Mint established mintage caps for the individual coins and four-coin sets.
Coins that receive a PF70 grade from the NGC have original characteristics with now flaws. UCAM labels indicate the coins have strong-frosted elements with a matte design.
The obverse of 2010 Proof American Eagle 1/2 oz Gold Coins features an iconic image of Lady Liberty designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. Lady Liberty holds a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Fifty stars line the edge of the obverse with the capitol in the distant background.
On the reverse face of these coins, you will see the American bald eagle family. The male eagle flies over his family nest while a single hatchling rests under the female eagles wing. This imaged was designed by Miley Busiek in 1986.
The Proof American Eagle Gold Coins were introduced in three stages starting with the 1 oz released in 1986. The 1/2 oz followed in 1987 and the 1/4 and 1/10 oz in 1988. In order to meet investor demand each year, the U.S. Mint is legally required to strike Gold and Silver Eagle coins in the bullion version. Because of this the proof and burnished version were suspended in 2009 so that the mint could redirect blanks to bullion coin production. In 2010, the Gold Eagle and Silver Eagle collections returned with four weights available.
