The Gold Eagle coin was authorized by Congress in 1985, with the coins debuting one year later in 1986. The Gold American Eagle coin is the official gold bullion coin of the United States. Offered for the first time in 1986, the coins are available in 1 oz, ½ oz, ¼ oz, and 1/10 oz weight options.
Each Gold American Eagle coin offered by the United States Mint also comes in three different versions. The Gold Eagle bullion coin debuted with all four weights available immediately. The 1 oz gold coin debuted in proof in 1986, with the ½ oz offered in 1987 and the ¼ and 1/10 oz coins following in 1988.
On the obverse of Gold American Eagle coins you’ll notice the most iconic of American coin designs. The design of Liberty on these coins came from Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who designed Liberty’s features in 1907 at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt for the nation’s revamped gold coins.
The reverse of the 2018 ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coin features the image of bald eagles. In the design a male eagle returns to the nest with an olive branch, wherein a female eagle is seen guarding the hatchlings. This was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
Each 2018 ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coin in this listing is considered a perfect specimen. Mint State 70 coins show full, original mint luster and bear no detracting flaws. Early Release coins arrived at the NGC for certification within the first 30 days of their 2018 issue from the United States Mint.
