All four weights in the Proof Gold American Eagle Collection were up in 1999 from the lows of 1998. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle experienced a near-even jump in demand to the 1/2 oz coin, rising by just over 5,000 coins to settle with the second-best mintage of the year in total behind the 1/10 oz coin.
While the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle had the second-highest mintage figure in 1999, its increase was lower than that of the 1 oz coin, which surged by more than 6,000 coins year-over-year compared to the 1998 issues.
On the obverse face of the 1999 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins is a design of Lady Liberty. This vision of Liberty captures her figure framed by the rays of the sun rising over the horizon in the background. As she walks forward toward the viewer on this side of the coin, she holds a torch high overhead in her right hand and wields an olive branch in her left. Around the outer edge of the design field is a circle of 50 stars representing all US states.
The reverse of 1999 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles includes the image of American bald eagles. In this design from Miley Busiek, a male eagle flies above the family nest as a female offers her wing as shelter to hatchlings.
These 1999 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins are available with perfect certifications from the NGC. A PF70 coin has full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws. The UCAM label indicates the presence of strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields on the coins.
