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 early 'Ten' with sharp detail and nice lustrous surfaces. 37,449 minted with an estimated 300 to 400 survivors.
Scratch - AU Detail. Large Stars Obverse.
A sharply detailed example of this tough early New Orleans 'Ten'.
A better early 'O' mint with a mintage of just 51,000. This example is well detailed with pleasing lustrous surfaces.
The first year for 'gold eagles' at the San Francisco mint and an issue that usually shows up well worn. High grade coins are truly scarce with PCGS grading just 4 coins mint state and a 62 coin being the finest. This is an attractive Choice AU with sharp detail and bright lustrous surfaces.
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 3 AU-55 and a single AU-58 have graded finer at PCGS.
Sharp detail with very clean surfaces for a No Motto 'Ten'. Just 15,055 minted.
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.
Flashy yellow-gold luster and a sharp strike. A modest 208,700 minted with the finest graded being just a point finer than this example.
CAC. Exceptionally nice for the grade and a truly scarce date with a mere 9,925 minted.
Beautiful velvety rich gold luster and a sharp strike. The surfaces are very clean for the grade with just minimal minor marks. Only 8 have graded finer at PCGS (7-64, 1-64+) and there would be a big price jump to secure one of those pieces.
Flashy gold luster and a very sharp strike.
Well detailed with pleasing surfaces.
Flashy mint luster and a bold strike.
CAC. Flashy apricot-gold luster and a sharp strike with pleasing surfaces. The finest graded at PCGS is a 63+, making this 'CAC 62' a very desirable coin!
Well struck with vibrant satiny yellow-gold luster and nice clean surfaces.
Well struck with original lustrous surfaces. A modest 98,000 struck.
Well struck with flashy gold luster and strong eye appeal. There's a big jump in price above this grade with MS-63 coins being the finest graded at PCGS.

A modest 82,400 minted with very few high grade survivors. This is an amazing example with incredibly intense mint luster and a needle-sharp strike. Only 5 have graded MS-65 at PCGS with just a single coin grading higher.
