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.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces blend with a sharp strike to create a stand-out early Liberty Head. 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.
Well struck with crisp yellow-gold luster. Amazingly clean surfaces for the grade as these No Motto 'Tens' tend to come rather hacked up.
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.
Well detailed for the grade and a pleasing early date 'Ten'.
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 and lustrous with few marks for the grade.
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.
Brilliant luster and a sharp strike. Scarce and popular date with great eye appeal for the grade.
CAC. Sharply struck with virtually full mint luster. Surfaces have the appearance of coin carefully stored away for many years. A popular and very desirable 'CC' date with great eye appeal.
Satiny apricot-gold luster and well struck with nicer surfaces than typically seen on a New Orleans 'Ten'. Just 8 have graded finer at PCGS.
Well struck with rich flowing yellow-gold luster and few marks for the grade. Only a single coin (MS-64) has graded numerically finer at PCGS.
