For just the second time since 1988 when the 1/10 oz coin was introduced, it was not the top seller in the Proof American Gold Eagle collection in 2011.

Each of the 2011 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles available to you through this APR 57 product listing earned a PF70 certification from the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade are considered perfect specimens with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws present on the designs or surface areas.
The included UCAM label identifies the coins as ultra-cameo specimens. Coins with this designation have strong, frosted design elements overlaying a background field that is deeply-mirrored and clear.
The United States Mint set a mintage cap on individual 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins in 2011 at 30,000 coins. There were also an additional 40,000 coins available through the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set. While the individually issued coins sold out, the proof set did not and for just the second time in over 20 years, the 1/10 oz coin was not the top seller among the four coins.
On the obverse of American Gold Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and reimagined portraits of Liberty when compared to previous American coin designs. This image is distinctly American and portrays a strong image of Liberty.
The reverse side of 2011 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles includes a design from Miley Busiek. Created in 1986, this design depicts a male eagle as it flies over the family nest. Contained within the nest are a hatchling and a female eagle.
