The Gold American Eagle coin is the only gold coin from the US Mint available annually with fractional-weight options. The coin series includes three weights ranging from the ½ oz and ¼ oz coin to the 1/10 oz option. While the 1/10 oz option has proven increasingly popular, rivaling the 1 oz coin, the ½ and ¼ oz have struggled for demand.
In recent years, the ¼ oz Gold Eagle has seen rising mintage alongside its counterparts as demand for gold increased, but its mintage figure in any given year has failed to surpass 200,000 since it hit 564,232 in 1999.
All 2018 ¼ oz Gold American Eagles in this listing are in perfect condition from the PCGS. Coins with a Mint State 70 certification have full, original mint luster and lack all possible detracting flaws on both the obverse and reverse faces of the coin.
The First Strike label found within the slab of these coins denotes their arrival window for certification. Only coins received by the PCGS for certification within 30 days of their initial 2018 release date from the United States Mint apply for the FS designation.
On the obverse of 2018 Gold American Eagle Coins you’ll find the most iconic American coin design ever. Augustus Saint-Gaudens created this depiction of Liberty walking forth from the nation’s capital in 1907 and it featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin until 1933.
The reverse of ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coins includes a design from Miley Busiek created in 1986 exclusively for this series. It depicts a male bald eagle in flight as it returns to the nest where female is standing guard over the nest and hatchlings.
