When it comes to buying gold from the United States Mint, the first choice of many gold investors is the American Gold Eagle. Introduced in 1986, the annual-issue Gold Eagle is the nation’s official gold bullion coin and comes in sizes of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. The 2019 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coin is currently available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion in BU condition.

The American Gold Eagle coin is available in bullion, proof, and burnished coins each year. The bullion and proof versions of the coin come with the four weights mentioned above, while the burnished coin is currently only available as a 1 oz gold option. The bullion coins have the highest mintage figures, though demand among the four weights varies drastically.
Historically speaking, the 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle has swapped places with the 1/2 oz coin on a regular basis as the lowest minted coin in the series. For example, through most of the 2000s the 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle had the lowest mintage of the four, while the 2010s have seen the 1/2 oz coin fall to that position. Since 2010, the 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle has outperformed the 1/2 oz coin in every year.
The reverse of 2019 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins includes a special design found only in this coin series. The image of a male eagle flying over the family nest, which includes a female sheltering a hatchling, has featured on the coins since 1986. It was designed in that year specifically for the Gold Eagles by Miley Busiek.
On the obverse of 2019 American Gold Eagles is the nation’s most iconic coin design. Introduced in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the $20 Gold Double Eagle, this vision of Lady Liberty confidently striding forth from the nation’s capital with her torch and an olive branch has become well-known as the most coveted American coin design.
The United States Mint strikes all American Gold Eagle bullion coins at the West Point Mint facility, though you’ll find no mint marks present on these coins. These 2019 1/4 oz American Gold Eagle Coins ship inside of protective flips or tubes of 40 coins with each coin in Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
