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. Yellow-gold surfaces radiate with brilliant frosty luster. The strike is sharp and distinct with attractive surfaces that are devoid of significant marks. While 37,449 pieces were minted, it is estimated only 300-400 still survive. A quality example that would be an excellent addition to any collection.
A very attractive early 'Ten' with sharp detail and lustrous original surfaces that have peripheral orange-gold toning. 44,344 minted with an estimated 650 to 850 known.
A breathtaking example of the early Capped Bust gold eagle 'type' with a Heraldic Eagle reverse. The strike is needle-sharp and bright frosty luster covers flashy proof-like surfaces. 44,344 were minted with an estimated 650 to 850 survivors.
An attractive early 'O' mint with problem-free antique gold surfaces. Just 27,400 minted.
Rich satiny luster and a very sharp strike. This is a very scarce date in high grade with just five MS-62 coins grading finer at NGC.
Large Date. Scarcer than the Small Date variety with the date being extremely large. This is a bright lustrous example with good eye appeal and an antique gold appearance.
A rare date from the final year of gold eagles made at New Orleans until production resumed in 1879. Just 11,000 were minted. This is an attractive example with a strong strike and bright lustrous surfaces.
Just 3,990 minted and fewer than 100 extant with a single NGC MS-60 being the highest graded. This is a well detailed example with considerable bright yellow-gold luster.
A scarce date with a mintage of 8,000 and 80-100 estimated survivors.
Scarce in any grade with just 4,696 minted and none known to have survived in mint state. This is an attractive Choice AU with lustrous yellow-gold surfaces, just light wear, and minor marks - none of which impact the eye appeal of the coin.
Just 17,000 minted with relatively few survivors. NGC has graded just 3 mint state coins and PCGS has graded none! Akers called this date "underrated... generally unappreciated for its true rarity".
Attractive yellow-gold surfaces that exhibit ample remnant luster and a strong strike. The look is far cleaner than would be expected. Marks are few and minor with none of significance. The 1878-CC is among the rarest eagles from not only the Carson City Mint but also in the entire $10 Liberty series. Of 3,244 pieces minted, only a scant 60-75 pieces are believed to still survive. Only 12 pieces have graded finer at NGC with the highest graded being a single MS-61 example. Pieces seldom turn up and are avidly sought when they appear. A prime selection and addition to any advanced collection.
CAC. One of the rarest of all $10 Liberties. From a scant mintage of 3,244, only 60 to 75 are known today. This is an extremely nice coin for the grade with nice antique gold color and pleasing problem-free surfaces.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces exhibit ample luster and a nearly mint state look. Marks are minor with none of significance and the strike is solid. A very scarce Carson City date with only 6,764 pieces minted. This example is a very lofty grade with only 5 pieces graded mint state at NGC, the highest being 2 pieces graded MS-62.
Fresh lustrous orange-gold luster off flashy semi proof-like surfaces. The strike is very sharp and it's hard to detect the 'rub' that kept this out of a mint state holder. Just 12,000 minted.
Attractive lustrous surfaces and well struck, except for weakness on the eagle's neck, which is typical for this rare date. Just 12,000 minted.
Solid detail and pleasing original surfaces. Only 12,000 minted.
Bright orange-gold luster and a sharp strike.
A pleasing example of this scarce date which saw a mintage of just 17,500. This example is fully struck and lustrous with fewer marks than typically seen for the grade.
Well struck and lustrous. A modest 28,688 minted.
