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 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.
1839 9 Over 8. Type of 1838. Pleasant yellow-gold surfaces exhibit nearly full luster, marks of no significance, and a sharp strike. A very scarce and desirable issue with a mintage of only 25,801. Most known pieces are in the the VF-XF range which makes this nice AU-55 very desirable.
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.
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.
Very scarce with just 4,543 minted and 60-80 known survivors. The quality standards were poor off the press plus the issue saw heavy circulation. As a result most known coins are well circulated and heavily abraded. There are no known mint state coins. This high-end VF is a pleasing example without the heavy abrasions we just referenced. The detail is also strong for the grade.
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.
Just 45 to 60 known from an original mintage of only 1,762, making this probably the rarest coin in the series. This is an attractive example with solid detail and pleasing surfaces. It shows none of the heavy gauges that seem to plague these early issues. A fantastic collector coin and housed in an early light blue label holder.
Well struck with satiny yellow-gold luster. Marks are well within the expectation for the grade and there are none of the heavy hits that plague these scarce Carson City issues. Only 24,015 were minted and mint state examples are extremely elusive. The highest grade PCGS has awarded, MS 62+, has been designated to only 2 pieces and they have no public sale records. It has been 5 years since any PCGS MS-62 has publicly traded. A truly scarce and desirable coin!
Sharply struck with rich satiny yellow-gold luster. Well over 2 million minted but very few have survived in high grade. Only a single MS-66 has graded numerically finer than this example at PCGS.
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.
Well struck with lustrous straw-gold surfaces and fewer marks than expected for the grade. Tied for the finest graded at NGC!
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 with nice eye appeal. The second most available date from this popular branch mint.
Well struck with satiny yellow-gold luster over exceptionally clean surfaces. Outstanding for the grade and scarce in MS-64 or finer.
Rich satiny luster over beautiful smooth surfaces. Popular as one of just two Denver Mint $10 Liberties.
Strong detail and lustrous with just a touch of wear. A scarce date with a mintage of just 66,000.
