The Proof Gold American Eagle Coins all experienced their highest demand during their debut issues between 1986 and 1988, depending upon weight. From the late 1980s into the early 1990s, the Proof Gold Eagles would settle into a stable range of demand that lasted through the 10th anniversary of the series. 1998 marked the lowest mintage for all coins in the series to this date in program history.
All of the 1998 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins available to purchase here today come with an NGC certification. The PF70 grade issued to these coins indicates that each one has full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws present on the surface areas.
UCAM specimens are proof coins with unique visual brilliance. The finish of the coin has contrasting design sets and background fields. The design sets have strong, frosted matte elements and the background field has deeply-mirrored, clear visuals.
The obverse face of the 1998 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle features an iconic image of Lady Liberty. This design captures Liberty as she marches forward with her torch held high above in her right hand and an olive branch in her left hand. Her figure is framed by rays of the sun and surrounded by 50 stars.
On the reverse of 1998 Proof Gold American Eagles is the image of American bald eagles. This design includes a female and hatchling in the family nest, with a male eagle depicted flying overhead with a branch in its talons.
