The American Gold Eagle series of bullion coins are among the most trusted and admired bullion coins in the world. If you're interested in adding gold bullion to your portfolio on a budget, consider the 2016 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle - Brilliant Uncirculated from Gainesville Coins! With one-tenth oz (1/10 troy ounce) of pure gold, these .917 fine gold coins are the smallest denomination in the Gold Eagle series. Moreover, they still possess legal tender status and a face value of 5 Dollars.
The obverse uses Augustus Saint-Gaudens' design of Lady Liberty confidently proceeding forward, a torch held high in her right hand and her hair swept in the breeze. She also holds an olive branch in her other hand. Brilliant rays of light can be seen extending from beyond the horizon, with the year-date "2016" to the right of Miss Liberty. The U.S. Capitol can be seen in the background to the bottom-right of the design. "LIBERTY" runs across the top rim, while 50 stars line the outer rim.
On the reverse, Miley Busiek's bald eagle family image is used. The idyllic scene shows two adult bald eagles, one embracing her two eaglets in a nest while her companion returns with more branches for their dwelling. The mottoes "E PLURIBUS UNUM" and "IN GOD WE TRUST" are inscribed to the left and right, respectively, of the main design. The issuing nation "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" is indicated at the top rim. The bottom rim is filled by the weight and denomination, reading "1/10 OZ. FINE GOLD~5 DOLLARS." The coin's edge is reeded.
When adding gold coins to your holdings, it is sometimes convenient to have your metals in fractional sizes such as 1/10 oz in order to retain the greatest flexibility for growing or liquidating your stack of gold in incremental amounts. Add a low-cost legal tender gold coin to your investments with the Brilliant Uncirculated 2016 1/10 oz Gold American Eagle at Gainesville Coins!
