Although it was only 20 coins shy of the mintage for the 1/2 oz coin, it marked the second consecutive release of the four coins in the Proof Gold Eagle range in which the 1/4 oz coin was in the least demand.

From 1988 to 2006, the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle had been among the most popular coins in the four-coin collection of Proof Gold Eagles. Only twice during this period did the 1 oz coin outperform the 1/4 oz, and the 1/2 oz had never outperformed. In 2010, the 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle finished with the lowest demand in the collection for the second year in a row.
On the obverse side of the 2010 Proof Gold American Eagle Coin, you’ll find Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ design of Lady Liberty. This vision of Liberty was created in 1907 by Saint-Gaudens at the request of President Theodore Roosevelt as the nation sought to revitalize and modernize its coin designs.
The reverse face of 2010 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle Coins features a design found only on the Gold Eagles from the US Mint. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, this image includes a male eagle flying over the family nest with an olive branch as a female eagle in the nest offers protection to a young hatchling.
