The 2006 release of Proof Gold American Eagles were dampened somewhat by the variety of collectible coins released in conjunction with the 20th anniversary. The 1 oz Proof Gold American Eagle experienced a boost in demand courtesy of its availability as an individual item, inclusion in the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set, and its inclusion in the 20th Anniversary Gold Eagle Set with a 1 oz bullion, proof, and burnished coin.
2006 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins had a mintage that was down by 1,080 coins from the previous year. The 2006 release of the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle is notable in that it marks the first time in the program’s history since the 1988 release of this weight in which the 1/4 oz coin did not outperform the 1 oz coin.
On the obverse of 2006 Proof Gold American Eagle coins is the image of Lady Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this is considered the greatest image of Liberty ever featured on American coinage. The reverse side of 2006 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins includes a family of bald eagles created by Miley Busiek.
