Information and History of 1987 $10 Gold Coins
Value of 1987 Ten Dollar Gold Coin
The 1987 $10 gold coin is pretty much just a bullion coin. All that means is that the value of the coin will fluctuate depending on the current 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 issues these coins every year. The only difference is the year on the coin; no other coin changes take place. It doesn’t matter if the coin is dated as 1987, 2011, or any other year – you will always see the same features.

The front or obverse of the coin pictures a woman (Lady Liberty) holding a torch. The back or reverse of the coin has an eagle.
