The 1998 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin had a total mintage of 39,395 coins. That represents an increase of nearly 5,000 coins from the previous year and makes it the only coin in the collection to see its mintage rise from one year to the next since the 1994 coins rose above the figures from 1993.
Although the 1998 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle increased in mintage, it was still down significantly from highs in the early and mid-1990s. In 1990, the 1/10 oz coin had a mintage of 99,349, which fell to 62,667 by the 10th anniversary in 1995 and was down two-thirds from its 1990 high by the time of the 1998 release.
On the obverse side of the 1998 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin is the design of Lady Liberty. This vision of Liberty was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and marked a significant shift in the style of American coin design.
The reverse face of 1998 Proof American Gold Eagle Coins features the image of a family of bald eagles. In this design from Miley Busiek, a male eagle flies over the nest with a branch in its talons as a female keeps a close eye on a hatchling within the nest itself.
These 1998 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins earned PF70 certification from the NGC. Coins in this condition show full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws. The UCAM label means the coins have strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear backgrounds.
