Buy PCGS MS-70 FS Gold EaglesA magnificent combination of gold, design, and history renders every 2018 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Coin remarkable in and of itself.
Two elements, however, make these 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagles special. Each gold coin is designated with the prestigious First Strike label from PCGS and is available in a perfect Mint State 70 condition.
The First Strike distinction on a coin means it is from among the coin’s earliest production run. A 2018 First Strike coin, then, is from the earliest gold coins produced for that year. The Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) First Strike program designates coins issued in the first 30 days of the mint’s release.
“This designation not only adds value to modern coins,” writes PCGS, “but takes modern coin collecting to another level with multiple Mint releases each year.”
The “MS” in MS-70 stands for “Mint State.” This is a coveted condition only awarded to coins that are in impeccable shape. In the coin world, “MS-70” identifies coins in the best possible condition—free of wear and perfectly preserved. With respect to a coin’s condition, you cannot do better than a grade of 70.
Why Buy 2018 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Coins?Several factors make the PCGS First Strike 2018 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin an attractive part of any precious metals portfolio. It has an iconic design of American coinage, offers easy entry to the world of precious metals, and makes for a genuinely thoughtful gift.
Fractional weights also serve a very practical purpose: financial flexibility. With larger gold coins and bars, it could be difficult to leverage your gold when you need it most. Fractional weights allow you to buy as much physical gold as you want, then store, trade, and use it at your leisure in amounts both small and large.
Plus, certified coins like the PCGS First Strike 2018 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle can be particularly ideal for those in search of long-term profit potential. Why? While the price of gold bullion coins is primarily determined by the spot price of gold and the coin’s weight in gold, the price of a certified coin, like the PCGS First Strike 2018 1/10 oz. Gold Eagle, is also tied to its availability and condition. Accordingly, certified coins have shown to not be subject to the same level of spot price volatility as bullion coins. When economic conditions start seesawing, you could see the price of a certified coin fluctuate less than that of a bullion coin.
Due to their rarity, grading, and insulation from spot market volatility, certified gold coins like PCGS First Strike 2018 1/10 oz. Gold Eagles could achieve greater potential when held for longer periods of time. By nature, their scarcity allows for increased potential—potential you can buy today!

History of the 2018 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70American Eagle Coins were first minted in 1986, having first been authorized by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985. This act required 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, and outlined everything from the design to each coin’s diameter.
No matter the denomination, the Gold American Eagle remains one of the most popular gold coins in U.S. history. What makes these 1/10 oz. Gold Eagles special, however, is that they're officially graded and among the finest and earliest gold coins released in 2018.
This Gold Eagle has limited availability. The 2018 1/0 oz. Gold American Eagle stands apart for its unique PCGS First Strike label and perfect 70 grade.
The 2018 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Coin Design
The Obverse Gold Eagle Design: Lady LibertyPresident Teddy Roosevelt sought to introduce a coin to the U.S. that evoked the coinage of ancient Greek and Roman coins. From that seed blossomed the iconic Lady Liberty design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Saint-Gaudens design first appeared on the United States’ $20, or double-eagle, gold piece in 1907, where it remained until 1933.
Saint-Gaudens' Lady Liberty was chosen again in 1986, after President Ronald Reagan signed the Gold Bullion Act of 1985.
Lady Liberty marches forward on the obverse side of the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle Coin. Sun rays and stars accompany her majestic figure and add to the artwork’s complexity, which is beautifully reproduced here with the year and the word “LIBERTY.”
The Reverse Gold Eagle Design: Eagle FamilyThe reverse side of the 1/10 oz. Gold American Eagle features sculptor Miley Busiek’s design of a family of eagles, one with wings spread at the center. At the top is the inscription: “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” In a semi-circle along the bottom are the words “1/10 FINE GOLD ~ 5 DOLLARS.” On either side of the centermost eagle are the phrases “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST.”
