About the 1987 $10 Gold American Eagle
The $10 Gold American Eagle is one of the earliest fractional gold coins in this series. 1987 was one of only six years in which the U.S. Mint printed these popular coins with Roman numeral dates, making it a potential collector favorite.
This coin contains ¼ Troy oz. of .9167 gold, backed and guaranteed by the United States government. On the obverse Lady Liberty is framed by a glorious sun as she holds a torch and an olive branch aloft. On the reverse, a male eagle returns to his mate and chicks in the nest, also holding an olive branch.
What makes this coin a good buy?
A fractional gold coin like this is an easy buy in its own right, as it gains value steadily over time and is exceptionally easy to liquidate at need. But the potential collector's value of this coin makes it an even better choice. Historically this coin has already been worth more than its gold content.
So whether you're a dedicated collector attempting to add to your Gold American Eagle collection or an investor building a hard money stash, you can invest in this coin with confidence.
