The ¼ oz coin was originally quite popular in the Gold Eagle series of bullion coins. It had a high mintage figure during the first two years of availability in 1986 and 1987, ranking second among the fractional weights in that regard. In recent years though, the 1 oz and 1/10 oz have become popular choices, leaving the ¼ oz coin with low mintage figures.
On the obverse of the 2018 ¼ oz Gold American Eagle Coin you’ll find the image of Lady Liberty. Created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, this depiction features Liberty as she walks confidently forward from the nation’s capital city. Her hair and robe flow in the breeze as she holds her torch aloft on the right, and the olive branch of peace on the left.
The reverse of all Gold American Eagles includes an exclusive design created for the series in 1986 by Miley Busiek. The image features one adult eagle flying over the nest of hatchlings with an olive branch. Meanwhile, another adult eagle keeps a watchful eye over the nest and its hatchlings.
All Gold Eagles are a product of the United States Mint. Though bullion coins in the series do not feature a mint mark, the West Point Mint is the home of production in the US Mint system for the bullion Gold Eagles.
