American Eagle Gold
Tenth Ounce (1/10 oz) Bullion Coin


1986 - Present



On July 9th, 1985, the United States Congress passed the Gold Bullion Coin Act of 1985.

The law authorized the U.S. Mint to start producing Gold American Eagle bullion coins for investors and proof and uncirculated versions for collectors.

First minted in 1986, the American Eagle Gold bullion coin is made of 22 karat Gold that must be mined from sources inside the United States.

2016 1/10 oz American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin - Obverse side (Type I)

Inspired by the work of sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle gold coin (1907–1933) served as the model for the obverse design of the American Eagle Gold Bullion Coin.

The obverse design of the American Eagle Gold bullion coin depicts Lady Liberty with a torch (enlightenment) in her right hand, an olive branch (peace) in her left, and rays of light (God) at her back.

Liberty's hair and gown are flowing in the wind as she stands confidently on land with oak leaves (wisdom / strength) and the United States Capitol.

Inscriptions:

  • LIBERTY
  • Year of Issue
  • 50 stars encircling Lady Liberty (the stars represent the 50 states of The United States of America)
