Once a favorite among collectors buying gold in the Proof Gold American Eagle collection, the 1/4 oz coin had fallen from the top by the late-2000s and early-2010s. The 1 oz gold coin and 1/10 oz coins were the clear favorites, with mintage figures for the 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz coins lagging far behind. Today, 2011 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagles are available to you online at Silver.com with a perfect certification.

The production of Proof Gold American Eagles soared back in 2010, but the demand suffered a big setback in 2011. The US Mint had increased both the individual mintage caps for the four coins in the series, as well as that of the 4-Coin Proof Gold Eagle Set. Collectors didn’t respond to the Proof Gold Eagle in 2011 as they had just one year earlier. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle saw its mintage sink by 15,725 in 2011 as a result of weaker demand for the collectible coins.
All of these 2011 1/4 oz Proof Gold American Eagle coins are available to you with a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade feature full, original mint luster and a complete lack of detracting flaws. The UCAM designation identifies the coins as ultra-cameo specimens, which refers to the quality of the visual finish. The design sets are strong and frosted, while the background field is deeply-mirrored and clear.
On the obverse of 2011 Proof Gold American Eagle coins is the vision of Liberty which Augustus Saint-Gaudens created. He developed this design in 1907 at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt who had initiated a program to revitalize the appearance of artwork on all American currency in the early 20th century.
The reverse side of the 2011 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles features the image of American bald eagles. This exclusive design was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek and features a male eagle flying over the nest as a female eagle shelters a young hatchling under her wing.
