2021 W $10 Gold Eagle PCGS MS70 Die Variety – Mint Error – Mule with Unfinished dies – Emily S. Damstra Signature

This is the first major die variety mint error coin in the Type 2 American Gold Eagle series. This $10 Eagle gold bullion coin was mistakenly struck on unpolished proof dies that have a W for WestPoint mintmark. Usually, the West Point mintmark would only be struck on Proof issue American Gold Eagles, making this a rare variety. We offer this unusual and valuable collectible coin in perfect MS70 condition by PCGS. This was one of the first coins released with the new Type 2 design.
 
Who is Emily S. Damstra?
 
This coin is hand signed by Emily S. Damstra. Emily is a Master designer with an impressive 40 credits at the United States and Royal Canadian Mints. Two of her designs have won the esteemed Coin of the Year (COTY) award. Her design was chosen by the United States Mint in 2021 for their new Type 2 American Silver Eagle, the most collected silver coin in the world. Emily has entered into an exclusive agreement with Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) to sign popular modern issue coins. Her sought-after signature adds another level of exclusivity and collectability to the top PCGS certified coins certified in MS70. In 2001 coins individually hand-signed by Emily S. Damstra outsold any other signature series coin.
 
Condition

Coins are graded on the Sheldon numeric grading scale of 1 to 70. To achieve the top grade 70, a coin must have no post-production imperfections at 5x magnification. Major mint errors and varieties on modern U.S. coins are rare because of modern minting procedures that prevent such pieces from being released to the public. This coin also qualifies as a “Mule Error Type”, a coin that is struck from coin dies not intended to be paired together. American Gold Eagle bullion coins should not bear the W mintmark positioned in the sun rays below the date 2021 on the obverse (heads) side of the coin. This coin is a major discovery and an important coin in the Type 2 series. To acquire one for your collection is an achievement.
