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.
Nice lustrous surfaces with a strong strike and just the barest sign of wear.
Strong detail with original lustrous surfaces.
263,106 minted but considerably scarcer than that mintage might lead one to believe.
Well detailed with original lustrous surfaces.
CAC. 1853/'2'. Long considered an overdate although PCGS and NGC now question that status. This is a pleasing example and in the lower loop of the 3; there is what surely looks to be the remnants of a 2!
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.
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.
Scarce in any grade with just a single mint state coin graded at either service. Only 3,990 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 1 mint state coin! 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!
Truly scarce in any grade as just 9,200 were minted and few have survived. This is a pleasing example with bold detail and lustrous surfaces that show fewer marks than usually seen on this date. Housed in an old holder.
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 pleasing example of this better New Orleans Mint 'Ten'.
Sharply struck with minimal marks and flashy mint luster.
A pleasing Carson City 'Ten'. 40,000 minted.
CAC. Well struck and lustrous with attractive antique gold surfaces.
