American Gold Eagle coinage is available to investors and collectors in three different versions and four different weights. The bullion coins are investment-grade coins that were introduced in 1986 with 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz options. The burnished coin is the newest addition and was introduced in 2006 by the US Mint with only a 1 oz gold option for collectors.
Proof American Gold Eagle coins are the primary collectible coins in the series. The Proof Gold Eagles are available in all four weights, unlike the burnished coin, and have lower mintage figures by individual weight than the 1 oz gold coin in the burnished series. These 1990 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagles mark the third issue of the coin in this weight following its 1988 introduction.
On the obverse of all 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins is the depiction of Lady Liberty created in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. He completed this design for the $20 Gold Double Eagle in mid-1907 but would die from illness months before the design actually released into circulation on the coins.
The reverse of 1990 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins features the image of a family of nesting bald eagles. Created in 1986 by Miley Busiek, this design is found only on the American Gold Eagle collection.
