Improving economic conditions led to less demand for the Gold American Eagle coinage in 2001. The bullion and proof versions of the coin both experienced dips in mintage, with the collectible proof coins setting some of the lowest mintage figures in the program’s history dating back to 1986. Today, 2001 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to you online at Silver.com in perfect condition.

All four of the coins in the Proof Gold Eagle Series dropped in demand in 2001. The intensity of those drops increased based upon previous popularity. For example, the 1/10 oz coin had long been the most popular choice of gold collectors to this point in the program’s history. As such, it suffered the greatest dip in demand overall in 2001. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle had been very popular in recent years, and its 2001 mintage fell by roughly 10,400 from the 2000 issue of the coin.
These 2001 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins earned PF70 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws present on the design sets or background field of the coin. Further, the UCAM label assigned these coins denotes the visual brilliance of its combined strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear backgrounds.
On the obverse of all 2001 Proof Gold American Eagles is an image of Lady Liberty. This vision depicts Liberty striding forward as a strong, confident figure. She holds a large torch in her right hand to guide the way for the nation into a peaceful future, reflected by the large olive branch in her left hand.
The reverse side of 2001 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles includes an image of American bald eagles. As the male eagle flies overhead clutching an olive branch in its talons, the female eagle steadfastly guards a young hatchling within the nest.
