From its introduction in 1988, the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Coin had proven as popular or more popular than the 1 oz gold coin. The only coin it would never surpass was the 1/10 oz coin, but it was always a popular choice. In fact, from 1988 to 2005, the 1/4 oz coin was surpassed by the 1 oz coin just two times.
In 2005, the 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle maintained its position as the second choice among collectors of Proof Gold Eagles. It would be the last year however it would enjoy this status, as it would be surpassed by the 1 oz coin in years to come. On a bright note for the year though, 2005 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle mintage increased by 8,368 coins. This is the largest year-over-year increase ever in the history of the 1/4 oz weight.
On the obverse face of 2005 Proof Gold Eagles is the image of Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 Gold Double Eagle. The reverse of 2005 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins includes Miley Busiek’s depiction of a family of bald eagles around their nest.
