The 1/4 ounce American Gold Eagle is one of four sizes of Gold Eagles produced by the United States Mint. As with all gold coins made by the mint, purity, weight, gold content, and authenticity are all fully guaranteed by the US Government. Legal tender in the United States and having a face value of 10 dollars, the 1/4 oz Gold Eagle is the second-smallest denomination of Gold Eagle currently produced. All Gold Eagles have numismatic value, in addition to the value of gold contained in the coin, and are, therefore, popular with collectors as well as investors who buy gold coins online. The newest issue in this series is the 2021 1/4 Ounce American Gold Eagle.
Details of the 1/4 Ounce American Gold Eagle
US Gold Eagles are manufactured from a 22 karat gold and copper alloy known as Crown Gold. This is done in order to increase hardness and to make each gold coin more durable. The overall weight of the 1/4 oz Gold Eagle is increased to compensate; thus, each 1/4 Gold Eagle does contain exactly 1/4 Troy ounce of gold.
2021 1/4 Ounce American Gold Eagles use St. Gaudens’ historic Lady Liberty walking design, notable for its use on circulation Gold Eagle coins in the World War I era. Also displayed on the obverse of the 1/4 Ounce Gold Eagle is the mint year. The reverse depicts a large heraldic eagle grasping an olive branch, along with the purity, weight, and face value of the coin. The design of American Gold Eagles does not change annually, meaning each mint year shares its design with all other mint years of Gold Eagles.
