Proof Gold Eagles were introduced in 1986 by the United States Mint, the same year that the BU Gold Eagle was released. However, while the BU Gold Eagle was released with weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz gold, the Proof Gold Eagle was originally offered in 1986 only in 1 oz gold. It was another two years before the series was completed with the same weights as the BU series.
In 1987, the 1/2 oz Proof Gold Eagle was introduced. In 1988, these 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagles were released along with the 1/10 oz Proof Gold Eagle to complete the series. The 1/4 oz Proof Gold Eagle has many of the lowest mintage figures in the series. In fact, its record high of 98,208 coins in 1988 remains the highest in the series by more than 30,000 coins over the next highest mintage year.
Lady Liberty is featured on the obverse side of 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins. The depiction of Liberty shown here was created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. In this design, Liberty walks toward the viewer in front-facing relief with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other.
American bald eagles are found in the reverse design of the 2021-W Proof Gold Eagle Coin. This depiction of the bald eagle as a family unit was created by Miley Busiek in 1986 and is making its final appearance on the coins. The design features a bald eagle soaring over the nest with another in the nest guarding a hatchling.
These 2021-W 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagles are available in perfect condition. Coins in this listing have PR70 grades, indicating that each one showcases full, original mint luster with no detractions. Deep-cameo coins have strong, frosted strikes and deeply-mirrored, clear fields.
