The mintage of just 37,530 coins in 2001 was the second-lowest to this date in the history of the 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagles. Compared to the 2000 issue, the 2001 1/10 oz coins dropped by 12,441 coins. The coins had been trending upward in demand from 1998 to 2000, but sank below previous low mintage levels in 2001 on weak interest in collectible gold. The 2001 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle remains the 8th lowest mintage year for this weight.
On the obverse side of the 2001 1/10 oz Proof American Gold Eagle is the image of Lady Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty surrounded by 50 stars as she holds the torch and olive branch is widely considered to be the greatest American coin design of all time.
The reverse face of the 2001 Proof American Gold Eagle includes the image of a family of bald eagles. This design was created exclusively for the American Gold Eagle collection in 1986 by Miley Busiek and features on the reverse of all versions and weights of the Gold Eagle.
