Ten Dollar Gold Coins or Eagles were made from 1795 to 1933. Several different types were made as follows: --- Capped Bust to Right, Small Eagle from 1795 to 1797 --- Capped Bust to Right, Heraldic Eagle from 1787 to 1804 --- Liberty Head from 1838 to 1907 --- Indian Head from 1907 to1933.
Ten Dollar Gold Coins were made in all the operating mints of the time and many rare and scarce dates exist.
Large Stars Obverse. A very attractive and problem-free early 'Ten' with sharp detail and nice lustrous surfaces. 37,449 minted with an estimated 300 to 400 survivors.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces blend with a sharp strike to create a stand-out early Liberty 'Ten'. With a mintage of just 47,338, this issue is difficult to locate in any grade and extremely difficult this nice. Only 6 grade finer at NGC.
Strong detail with lustrous antique gold surfaces. A better early New Orleans Mint 'Ten'.
A nice early 'O' mint with pleasing lustrous surfaces that are much cleaner than typically encountered.
A pleasing original early 'Ten-Lib'.
CAC. Nice original lustrous surfaces that are much cleaner than usually seen on an early 'Ten-Lib'.
A better early 'O' mint with a mintage of just 51,000. This example is well detailed with pleasing lustrous surfaces.
An affordable 'Ten' from the first year of production at the San Francisco mint.
Lustrous antique-gold surfaces with sharp detail. A scarce New Orleans Mint issue with a mintage of 20,000.
Very scarce with a mintage of 11,800 and just 60 to 80 known survivors. None are known in mint state. This is a well detailed example and is fairly clean for an issue that is plagued with problem coins. Only 4 AU-55 and a single AU-58 have graded finer at PCGS.
Attractive lustrous surfaces consist of a nice mix of yellow and orange hue and a touch of green accent. Strike is sharp and distinct. A popular Civil War date that can be challenging to locate in any mint state grade.
Brilliant sharply struck surfaces offer flashy remnant luster. Only 3,990 pieces were minted. It is estimated that only 40-90 pieces have survived with only 1 example graded mint state by NGC and none graded at that level by PCGS. This example represents a very lofty grade that is extremely desirable.
Very rare in any condition with just 10,000 minted and a low survival rate of mostly well worn coins. PCGS and NGC combined have graded ZERO mint state coins! This is a pleasing problem-free AU with bold detail.
Well struck with satiny straw-gold luster over attractive surfaces. The vast majority of mint state 1880 'Tens' are heavily bag marked and grade MS-60 to 62. Only a single coin has graded numerically finer than this impressive example!
The New Orleans mint closed shortly after the start of the Civil War in 1861 and didn't reopen until 1879. Gold coin production started at a snails pace with 1,500 gold eagles struck in 1879, 9,200 in 1880 and just 8,350 of these 1881 dated coins. This is a pleasing example of this scarce date with strong detail and lustrous surfaces.
A modest 76,860 minted with few high grade survivors. This is a well struck example with satiny luster and nice clean surfaces. Just 6 coins have graded finer at PCGS.
Sharp detail with flashy mint luster off semi proof-like surfaces.
CAC. Sharply struck with flashy yellow-gold luster and pleasing surfaces.
CAC. Sharply struck with virtually full mint luster. Surfaces have the appearance of a coin carefully stored away for many years. A popular and very desirable 'CC' date with great eye appeal.
