Each of the 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles in this Silver.com listing earned near-perfect certifications from the NGC. A PF69 coin exhibits full, original mint luster and a maximum of two minor detracting flaws. These flaws are limited to minuscule contact marks or hairlines visible only outside the primary focal areas of the coin.
The included UCAM label indicates the coins have a so-called ultra-cameo finish. This indicates the coin’s design sets have strong, frosted matte elements and the background field features a deeply-mirrored, clear appearance.
Silver.com will randomly select a 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle for you when you purchase through this listing. We cannot guarantee the date mark found on these coins as your coin is chosen based upon availability when your payment is processed. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle will feature either a “P” mint mark from the Philadelphia Mint (1988-1993 issues) or a “W” mint mark from the West Point Mint (1994 to present).
On the obverse of all Proof Gold American Eagle coins is a design of Lady Liberty. First created in 1907 for the $20 Gold Double Eagle, this depiction from Augustus Saint-Gaudens was modified slightly for use on the Gold Eagle. The US Mint added two more stars to the circle of 50 stars around Liberty to accurately reflect the number of US states today.
The reverse of the 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle features American bald eagles. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, the imagery includes a male eagle flying over a nest which includes a group of hatchlings and female watching over them.
