When the U.S. Mint debuted its 1/10 oz version of the American Gold Eagle in 1987, it made government-issued gold bullion even more accessible to the average person, providing an affordable alternative to standard 1-ounce coins. Like its larger cousins, this coin is struck from .917 fine gold, following the 22-karat standard set by Britain's Gold Sovereign coin during the 19th century. Each 2015 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle contains a total of one-tenth ounce (0.1 troy oz) of pure gold content, with a total weight of 1.0909 troy oz. It is designated with a face value of 5 Dollars.
On the obverse, Augustus Saint-Gaudens' classic design of Liberty is reproduced, with minor modifications. Miss Liberty strides forward carrying a torch and an olive branch as radiant sunlight emanates from beyond the horizon. The year of issue "2015" is placed to the right of Miss Liberty, and the Capitol building is tucked into the bottom-left corner of the background. The legend "LIBERTY" runs across the top rim, while fifty stars line the perimeter of the design.
The reverse, designed by Miley Busiek, shows a family of bald eagles. The mother eagle sits in the nest with her eaglets, while the father eagle arrives with a small olive branch to add to the nest. Along the bottom rim, the weight and denomination ("1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD~5 DOLLARS") are inscribed in bold lettering. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" runs across the top rim, while the mottos "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are found to the left and right of the eagle family, respectively.
The American Gold Eagle is one of the most trusted gold coins on the global market, and it has remained popular among traders, investors, and collectors alike in its nearly three decades of annual production. The introduction of fractional sizes to the series has made legal tender gold coins even more accessible to modest investors and cost-conscious collectors.
