In 1986, the United States Mint issued the American Eagle Gold Coins for the first time. In the 21st century, the series is a diverse collection offering gold bullion coins in BU, Proof, and Burnished specimens. One of the strongest periods of demand in the history of the series came between the start of the Great Recession and the 2020s. The driving factors behind demand during this period varied, with the 2009 coins heavily impacted by the Great Recession. Right now, you can buy 2009 American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coins online from Provident Metals.
With your purchase of the 2009 American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coin online in this Provident Metals listing, you will receive a gold coin that is packaged in a protective plastic flip. These coins marked a significant increase in demand from just two years prior when the 2007 1/4 oz gold coin set an all-time low in the history of the series.
The obverse of 2009 American Eagle 1/4 oz Gold Coins comes with a portrait of Lady Liberty. In this design, Liberty is in front-facing relief with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. She is featured in full-length relief walking toward you with the U.S. Capitol Building visible at her feet, sun rays on the horizon, and a ring of 50 stars around the field. Inscriptions on this side include LIBERTY and 2009.
On the reverse face of 2009 American Eagle Gold Coins is the image of a family of bald eagles. Exclusive to the American Eagle Gold Series, this 1986 design from Miley Busiek comes with a male eagle in flight over the nest as a female eagle guards over hatchlings within the large nest. The reverse field includes inscriptions that read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, 1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD, and 10 DOLLARS.
With the release of 2009 American Eagle Gold Coins, demand was up across the board among three of the four weights. The 1/10 oz gold coin was the only one to see a drop in demand from the previous year. For the 1/4 oz gold coin, demand was up by 40,000 coins from the previous year and was up nearly three fold from the 2007 release when the 1/4 oz gold weight set a record low.
