Queensland Mint is proud to present the 1996 1/10th oz #specs_Origin# Eagle Gold Coin from The United States Mint.
The 1996 American Gold Eagle coin marked a major changing point in the bullion series from the US Mint. From its introduction in 1986, the coins in this collection had seen dropping demand, but also a change in which coin was the most popular among investors.
While the 1996 1 oz American Gold Eagle had hit the lowest demand it has seen to date in its history, the 1/10 oz coin actually increased in 1996 by nearly double, and would remain equal to or ahead of the 1 oz in terms of demand.
- Contains 1/10th oz or 3.11g of 917 Fine Gold
On the obverse of all 1996 American Gold Eagle Coins you’ll find the image of Liberty, with flowing hair and a flowing robe as she walks forward into an unknown future holding her bright torch as a guiding light. It was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
The reverse of all American Gold Eagle coins includes the design of a family of bald eagles in their nest. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, it features the image of a male eagle flying over the family nest, which contains a group of hatchlings that is guarded by a watchful female.
