The 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle is often the lowest minted in the group of four collectible coins each year. The mintage of 50,839 in 1991 was the second-lowest figure in front of only the 1 oz gold coin. It was nearly 20,000 fewer coins than the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle, which is often the most popular.
On the obverse side of all Proof Gold American Eagle coins, you’ll find the iconic image of Lady Liberty. This depiction captures a bold and confident Liberty as she walks toward the viewer on the coin’s surface with an olive branch in her left hand and a torch held high in her right hand. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and was a new vision for Liberty which captured her figure with free-flowing hair and a long robes flowing behind her as she moved.
The reverse of the 1991 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coin features Miley Busiek’s bald eagle creation. Her design includes an entire family of bald eagles by their nest, with a group of hatchlings in the nest under the watchful eye of the mother and a father flying overhead.
All 1991 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles have Roman numerals for the date mark, a trend which ceased the next year when the US Mint switched to Arabic numerals for the date marks in 1992. These coins also have “P” mint marks from the Philadelphia Mint, which struck the fractional Proof Gold Eagles through 1993.
