Information and History of 1986 $10 Gold Coins
Value of 1986 Ten Dollar Gold Coin
The 1986 $10 gold coin is for the most part just a bullion product. All that means is that the value of the coin will be different depending on the current melt value of gold. This coin weighs a quarter of an ounce. So you can divide the current price of gold by four to get the melt value of this coin. Collectors refer to these as AGE or American Gold Eagles. The United States Mint produces these coins every year. The only difference is the year on the coin; the rest of the design remains unchanged. Whether we are talking about a coin made in 1986, 2015, or any other year – you will always see the same features.
The 1986 quarter ounce coin has the following text: MCMLXXXVI – Liberty – United States of America – E Pluribus Unum – In God We Trust – 1/4 OZ. Fine Gold ~ 10 Dollars – MB JW. The front or obverse of the coin pictures Lady Liberty holding a torch. The back or reverse of the coin has a flying eagle.
No proof coins exist from 1986 for the ten dollar denomination. 1988 is the first year $10 gold proof coins were issued. A proof coin would have a mintmark below the year.
