The United States Mint first introduced Gold Eagles in 1986, but it wasn’t until 1988 that the coin was released in a 1/4 oz denomination from the Philadelphia location of the Mint. Therefore, this 1991 coin was also released from Philadelphia, which is indicated by the “P” mint mark included on the coin itself. This weight denomination was minted in this location until 1993, when production was transitioned to the West Point Mint.
The obverse of the 1991 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows the image of Lady Liberty, which was adapted from Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ famous Gold Double Eagle design. In the image, Lady Liberty is seen extending both arms, with one holding a torch and the other holding an olive branch. She walks triumphantly toward the viewer, and sun rays extend out behind her in the distance.
The reverse of the 1991 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coin shows an eagle family design created by artist Miley Busiek. In the image, a female eagle waits patiently in a nest with her eaglets, while the male eagle soars overhead. He carries an olive branch in his talons and is shown bringing it to the nest. The coin’s weight, value, and purity are also on the reverse, along with its country of origin.
