The popularity of the Proof Gold American Eagle couldn’t sustain demand following the 1995 10th-anniversary issue. The coins released by the US Mint between 1996 and 1998 experienced falling mintage figures in each consecutive year to establish low-mintage marks that would remain until the 2001 coins were released. The 1996 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle is currently available to you for purchase online at Silver.com in perfect condition.

Coin Highlights:

  • Ships to you inside of protective plastic slabs from the NGC!
  • 9th year of availability for the 1/4 oz weight in the Proof Gold Eagle Series!
  • Availability limited within the original 38,219-coin mintage!
  • Consists of One-Quarter Troy ounce of actual gold content.
  • Issued face values of $10 (USD) by the United States.

  • UCAM designation.
  • Lady Liberty appears on the coin’s obverse side.
  • American bald eagles feature on the coin’s reverse face.
  • Includes “W” mint marks.

Throughout the early- and mid-1990s the Proof Gold American Eagle from the United States Mint maintained steady demand from gold collectors. Those individuals buying gold in the Proof Gold Eagle Series managed to hold most of the coins within the same 8,000-coin range per weight each year.

In 1996 though, the demand from collectors began to fall off. 1996 was the first of three consecutive years of availability stretching through 1998 in which the Proof Gold Eagles would drop annually. The 1996 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coin dropped by roughly 9,200 coins from the 10th-anniversary coins in 1995 and would fall a further 9,200 in total by 1998.

The obverse face of Proof Gold American Eagle Coins includes one of the nation’s most iconic coin designs. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this vision of Liberty was originally used on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin and helped spur a new wave of American coin design throughout the early 20th century that would culminate in 1916.

On the reverse side of 1996 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles is a design of American bald eagles. This family-centric portrait includes a male eagle flying over the nest with a branch in its talons while a female protects a hatchling under her wing within the nest.

These 1996 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles are available to you today in perfect condition. The NGC issues the PF70 certification to coins with full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. Strong, frosted matte designs and deeply-mirrored, clear backgrounds highlight justify the UCAM label included.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
