U.S. Mint Releases the Mintage of the $10 ¼ oz American Gold Eagle Error
The U.S. Gold Eagle $10 ¼ oz mint errors struck with an unfinished proof obverse die were accidentally struck on August 24, 2021. This was announced in a press release by Todd Martin, the Deputy Chief of Corporate Communications for the United States Mint. The U.S. Mint stated that 7,924 of the Gold Eagle error coins were released. The proof die that was used to strike the "mules" did not have the laser frosting applied to the devices.
GreatCollections first revealed this discovery. The Type 2 Reverse bullion coins with West Point mint marks were found by Gerald Medel and are now classified as "Unfinished Proofs." GreatCollections has been offering this new discovery of $10 2021-W Gold Eagles struck with unfinished proof dies in their auctions.
