Proof American Gold Eagle coins were first offered by the United States Mint in 1986, but there was only a 1 oz gold coin available in that year. Between 1987 and 1988, the US Mint introduced three additional coins. The first of these was the 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle in 1987, followed by the 1/4 oz and 1/10 oz coins in 1988.
All 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagles available to you for purchase here today comes with its original capsules, but lacks the US Mint display box and Certificate of Authenticity initially offered. JM Bullion offers these as a random year selection, meaning the date mark on your coin will range from 1988 to 2008 or from 2010 onward. There were no 2009 Proof Gold Eagles issued by the US Mint.
JM Bullion warehouse team members will select your coins at random once your payment has been processed. As a random listing, when you buy multiple coins through this listing you may receive several coins with the same date mark. We cannot guarantee a particular date mark for you.
On the obverse of 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins is the image of Lady Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The design features Liberty in front-facing profile as she holds her torch high overhead and clutches an olive branch in her left hand.
The reverse of 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles includes the design of an American bald eagle family. The design is exclusive to the Gold Eagle series and was created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, and features a male eagle flying over the nest as a female guards a hatchling under her wing.
