The Gold American Eagle Series debuted in 1986 and has long seen its mintage figures driven by the price of gold and demand for gold by investors. When the coins debuted in 1986 there was not much variety in the gold bullion coin market to satisfy the demand of buyers. Low prices also drove a particular niche of buyers to snatch up coins.
Throughout the 1990s though, the Gold American Eagle series saw sinking demand. In many of those years, it was the 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle that had the lowest mintage figures among the four available weights in the bullion range. As prices rose and fell, and demand followed suit, the 1/4 oz Gold Eagle did see jumps in its mintage. While it has experienced renewed demand in the mid-2010s, the 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle’s highest mintage year remains its 1986 debut with 726,031 coins.
On the obverse of 2019 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles is the image of Lady Liberty. This design was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 Gold Double Eagle coin, the highest denomination gold coin in circulation at the time. The image of Liberty holding her torch and an olive branch as she walked featured on the $20 Gold Double Eagle until that program ended in 1933 with the US no longer following the gold standard as a backing for its currency.
The reverse side of 2019 Gold American Eagle Coins includes a family of American bald eagles. The male bird flies over the nest in this design as a female extends her wing to shelter a young hatchling in the nest. This design is exclusive to the Gold Eagle Series and was developed in 1986 by Miley Busiek.
These 2019 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle Coins are all in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and are offered to you inside of individual protective packaging or mint tubes of 40 coins.
