Each individual 1990 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin available to you here today comes inside of the NGC’s protective plastic slab. These coins earned the PF70 certification which means each one exhibits full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws of any kind on the surface areas of design sets.
The included ultra-cameo (UCAM) label inside of the slab denotes the visual brilliance of the proof version of the Gold Eagle. These coins have strong, frosted matte design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
All Proof Gold American Eagle coins are produced by the United States Mint. From 1987/1988 until 1993, the fractional weights were issued by the Philadelphia Mint and include “P” mint marks on the obverse field. Additionally, all Gold American Eagle coins (bullion and proof) struck from 1986 to 1991 have date marks on the obverse side in Roman numerals rather than Arabic numerals.
The obverse of the 1990 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin includes the depiction of Liberty as she walks toward the viewer with Washington D.C. behind her in the background. This image was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and used from 1907 to 1933 on the $20 Gold Double Eagle.
On the reverse of Proof Gold American Eagle Coins, you’ll find a family of bald eagles at their nest. The male flies overhead as a female closely guards the hatchlings within, and this image was created specifically for the Gold Eagle Series in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
