Product details

Since 1986, these iconic coins have featured Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ Lady Liberty on the obverse side and Miley Busiek’s eagles and nest on the reverse. With a nominal face value of $10, each coin weighs ¼ of a troy ounce and offers 22-karat purity. The Q3 2021 redesign will see a new eagle design by Jeannie Norris on the reverse side (and will be upgraded with anti-counterfeiting features).

Like its little brother, the 1/10 oz American gold eagle, the 1/4 oz eagle provides collectors and investors an opportunity to add a historic coin to their stash at a modest price. These 1/4 oz gold eagles are often given as gifts to the young (who might struggle with the idea of having money without spending it). They can spark a lifetime fascination with numismatic art, American history, and an understanding of what hard money really is. 

About the American eagle series

The American Eagle series is the only series of coins whose weight and purity are guaranteed by the U.S. government. American Gold Eagles span a range of 1/10-oz to 1-oz, each with the same guaranteed purity.

These coins were first minted in 1986, the year after the 1985 Bullion Coin Act was passed. First minted in Philadelphia, all American eagles are now minted at West Point by the U.S. Mint. American gold eagles are permissible inside gold IRAs, making the coins a good choice for those looking to secure their future finances. The upcoming redesign will feature anti-counterfeiting measures.

Each American gold eagle consists of crown gold, an alloy made of 91.7% gold, 3% silver, and 5.3% copper. This durable alloy is more resistant to wear than 23-kt or 24-kt gold, making it more suitable for long-term storage.

Coin Features:

  • Nominal face value of $10
  • 1/4 oz gold content, 22-karat (0.9167) purity
  • The low weight makes this coin a more affordable entry point to the iconic American gold eagle series.
  • Weight and purity guaranteed by the U.S. government
  • Q3 2021 type 2 redesign features anti-counterfeiting measures

*We pack individual coins in plastic sleeves for protection before shipping. If you order 10+ of the same coin, we’ll secure them in protective tubes before shipping.
