The gold coins of the Proof American Eagle Series are available in four weights. The two lowest-minted coins in the series are the 1/2 oz and 1/4 oz gold coins. While the 1/2 oz gold coin was introduced in 1987, the 1/4 oz gold coin debuted in 1988 alongside the 1/10 oz gold coin to complete the four-coin collection as it debuted in the BU version in 1986.

The United States Mint unveiled the American Gold Eagle coins in 1986 as Brilliant Uncirculated and Proof specimens. The BU coins were released that year with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold options. However, as mentioned above, the Proof coins were introduced over the course of three years from 1986 to 1988.
All of these 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins are available to you with a perfect certification. The PR70 designation is reserved for coins that have full, original mint luster and no detracting flaws of any kind. The DCAM label stands for deep-cameo and points to the presence of strong, frosted design elements and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields. The included First Strike designation indicates the specimens were received for grading within the first 30 days of the initial release.
On the obverse of 2021-W Proof American Gold Eagles, you will find the iconic Liberty design created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. This powerful image of Liberty captures her figure larger than life as she walks toward you as the viewer holding a torch out in her right hand and holding an olive branch in her left hand. The background field has rays of sunshine and a ring of 50 stars around the entire design field.
The reverse side of 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles comes with a depiction of the American bald eagle. The bald eagles shown here represent a family unit, with a male eagle shown soaring over the nest as a female eagle shelters a hatchling in the nest below. This is the last year that this design will feature as the US Mint will replace it with a new eagle design on the reverse by mid-2021.
