    Correct - 1/10 Gold Eagle :smile:

    The American Eagle tenth-ounce gold bullion is the smallest U.S. coin currently minted in diameter, Gilkes writes, smaller even than the dime. The coin's diameter is 16.5 millimeters, which is slightly smaller than the dime's. The gold coin weighs 3.393 grams (0.11 ounce), which is heavier than both the cent and dime.

    Yes, but it is unalloyed. The 1/10 gold eagle contains 1/10 of an ounce of gold PLUS the alloy!

    Those 1/10 ounce gold coins are just so tiny.....Yes, I still like them, but I prefer the big one's....just like the heft of them in the hand, and I do not need a magnifying glass to appreciate them.... ;) Cheers, RickO

    Would love the mint to start making the silver trime for collectors again.

    Paper money eventually returns to its intrinsic value. Zero. Voltaire
