It is a 1/10th oz American Eagle also called gold eagle. Here is a link where you can go read all about it if you like.

No worries of it being anodized. I'm 99% percent confident it's legit just looking at it. Confident enough that I'll offer to buy it from you right now, although I would recommend you not sell it. A weight test can tell you everything you need to know. A local coin dealer can verify that for you.

Since it is a proof coin, it likely has a small premium in value attached to it. Also, gold eagles from 1991 are selling for around $170 right now.

1991 was the last year that the mint printed the year in Roman numerals on the coin. This might be a collector factor down the road.

A certified coin of this type in perfect condition (PR-70 or MS-70) can sell for over $300 right now. You may want to have the coin certified by someone: PCGS, NGC, or ANACS.

As Scott A pointed out. The particular coin you have is not only a American Eagle gold bullion coin from the US Mint, it is one of the proof coins. These have a higher sheen due to being pressed when the dies are new. So there are fewer proof coins out there. Also having the original paperwork and mint box helps with value to collectors.

Definitely go through a coin dealer if you ever intend to sell that piece. Other gold bullion coins don't fetch much premium over spot gold prices, except for low mintage years. American Eagles, and Canadian Maple Leaf coins in silver, gold and platinum are good to have a small cache of because of their known purity and they make for easy trade if you need cash in an emergency. When I started buying bullion coins, a 1/10 oz. gold eagle was running about $65 (gold was just over $600 an ounce, but the 1/10 oz coins had a small premium). 1 oz Silver eagles were about $7.50. Last time I needed some emergency cash I sold gold coins when gold was at $1250 an ounce and Silver was at close to $20 an ounce.

Minus commission. That's it. I'd sell it or trade in for a gun, if not a sentimental value.

The gold value, as you describe the coin, would be about $115.00 subject to change by the minute.

Its metal and collector value will vary through the years, the good thing is it will always be worth whatever gold is but likely in a couple decades, much more than that in its current form. Its a keeper for sure!

It sure looks like a US Mint proof coin to me. I wouldn't take it out to check.

It says Philadelphia mint. Not Franklin Mint, the souvenir merchant.
