A History of the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle CoinThe history of this remarkable 1/10 oz. gold coin started with Ronald Reagan. It was during his second term as president that he signed the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. This act mandated that the U.S. Mint begin production of a family of 22-karat gold bullion coins in one-half, one-quarter, and one-tenth denominations. The act also outlined everything from the design of each coin to its diameter. One year later, in 1986, American Eagle Gold Bullion Coins were first minted.
The 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin Design
The Obverse Gold Eagle Design: Lady LibertyThere’s so much history surrounding this 1/10 oz. gold coin! The image on the front is based on the work of renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Created in the early 1900s, Saint-Gaudens' design was initially produced for the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coin minted between 1907 and 1933.
Lady Liberty herself adorns the coin’s obverse. Commanding the center of the design, she appears in full figure, her hair windswept and her gaze fearless. She holds a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left, with the Capitol Building visible behind her.
The Reverse Gold Eagle Design: Eagle FamilyAmerican sculptor Miley Busiek (now known as Miley Tucker-Frost) is the vision behind the coin’s reverse side. Her inspiration? Ronald Reagan’s acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention in 1980—just five years before he would sign the Gold Bullion Act of 1985.
The reverse side of the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin features a family of bald eagles. A male eagle flies over a nest with an olive branch in his talons. A female eagle sits in the nest, her wings protectively encircling two eaglets.
