The US Mint issues the American Eagle Gold Coins and their Proof versions each year. Issued in 1988 with high demand and critical acclaim from the community of investors and collectors, the 1/4 oz gold coin remains a popular choice. Today, Provident Metals offers you the 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 Gold Coin!
The American Eagle Gold Coin only had one weight available after its initial introduction in 1986. This is the 1 oz weight. However, with high demand and the success rate of the Series, other fractional-ounce weights were added, including the 1/4 oz Gold Coin. Augustus Saint-Gaudens and Miley Busiek are world-famous engravers known for their imagery featured on the obverse and reverse of the coins.
The obverse of any American Eagle coin and their Proof versions have always featured Lady Liberty. The design is iconic for its depiction of a gorgeous woman walking away from the majestic Capitol while holding a torch and an olive branch in the other hand. The inscriptions at the rim of the coin include “LIBERTY” and the year of mintage.
The reverse displays a male eagle in flight while the female eagle cares for their hatchlings. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,” “IN GOD WE TRUST,” “E PLURIBUS UNUM,” along with the denomination and weight.
These 2001-W Proof American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coin are composed of 91.67% gold, 5.33% copper, and 3% silver and the fractional-ounce of 1/4 oz coin has a face value of $10 (USD).
