When the American Gold Eagle debuted in 1986, the 1 oz coin was the popular choice among investors. During eras of low gold prices, such as the 1980s and 1990s, the 1 oz coin remained atop the heap of four options as the go-to coin for many gold buyers. However, the 1/10 oz coin surged in popularity near Y2K as gold prices began to rise. From 1995 to 2002, the 1/10 oz coin outsold the 1 oz option in every year.
On the obverse side of 1/10 oz American Gold Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty. This front-facing image of Liberty walking forward from Washington DC was designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens to symbolize the nations growing prominence on the international stage and the projection of freedom and liberty the nation wanted to show the rest of the world. Saint-Gaudens created this design for the $20 Gold Double Eagle and it remained there until the coin was canceled in 1933.
The reverse of American Gold Eagle Coins features a design from Miley Busiek. Found exclusively on the American Gold Eagle coins, this design depicts a male eagle flying over the family nest as a female eagle stands watchful guard over a hatchling by offering her wing to it for shelter.
