Slightly more than 7 percent of the maximum product authorization of
the Proof 2018-W American Liberty tenth-ounce gold $10
coin were sold by the U.S. Mint during the first day of sales Feb. 8.
The Mint sold 9,842 of the coins at $215 per coin. The .9999 fine
gold product is limited to a maximum issue of 135,000 coins, with
orders restricted to five coins per household.
The coin bears the same obverse and reverse designs that appear on
the 2017-W American Liberty gold $100 coin and the 2017 American
Liberty silver medals.
The obverse, depicting Liberty as an African-American woman wearing
a crown of five-pointed stars, was designed by U.S. Mint Artistic
Infusion Program Artist Justin Kunz and sculptured by U.S. Mint
Sculptor-Engraver Phebe Hemphill. The eagle reverse was designed by
AIP artist Chris T. Costello and sculptured by U.S. Mint
Sculptor-Engraver Michael Gaudioso.

As long as coins are available, pricing is subject to change weekly
according to a pricing grid the Mint has established based on the spot
price of gold.
The American Liberty series began in 2015 with a gold coin of a
different design, followed in 2016 with the release of two silver
medals with the 2015 coin design.
The program’s goal is to showcase new visages of Liberty, as
proposed by the Citizens Coinage Advisory Committee in its planning
for coinage and medal issues.
