Over the course of time, the fractional weights in the Gold American Eagle collection became more popular than the original 1 oz coin. When the proof series debuted in 1986, there was only the 1 oz coin to purchase. The 1987 and 1988 release years saw the introduction of 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz coins. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle is among the top choices of collectors each year. Right now, 1989 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins are available to purchase at Silver.com in perfect condition.

Each of the 1989 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins available to you here today is packaged in a protective plastic slab to ensure the PF70 condition of the coin. This certification from the NGC means each coin exhibits full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws on the surface areas.
Proof coins with an ultra-cameo label are unique in their visual brilliance. The design elements have strong, frosted matte finishes and the background field is deeply-mirrored and clear, lending the impression that the design set is floating above the surface of the coin.
The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle is often the most popular in terms of demand among the four Proof Gold Eagle options. When first released in 1988, only the 1/10 oz coin had a higher mintage figure. Throughout many of the production years since then, the 1/4 oz coin has surpassed the 1 oz and 1/2 oz options. In 1989, it had the third-highest mintage at 54,170, which was just behind the 54,570 1 oz coins and well behind the 84,647 1/10 oz coins.
On the obverse of all Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is the empowering image of Lady Liberty as the nation’s guiding light for the future. This was designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The reverse of the 1989 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle features the family of nesting bald eagles created in 1986 by Miley Busiek. These coins have date marks in Roman numerals and a “P” mint mark from the Philadelphia Mint.
