The Proof American Gold Eagle coin is available annually for purchase from the United States Mint. The coins are available for purchase individually from the mint, as well as in a 4-coin collectible set each year. Initially, both options came with mintage caps as the US Mint sought to control the level of these collectible coins on the market. The 2004 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle is currently available to you online for purchase at JM Bullion with a perfect certification.

The United States Mint offers the Proof American Gold Eagle for collectible purchase as individual coins in the separate weights of 1 oz, 1/2 oz, 1/4 oz, and 1/10 oz. Additionally, the coins are available each year in a 4-coin collectible set. The two variations on sales add up to form the mintage figures for each year, with some coins sold individually and others in the sets.
For the 2004 Proof Gold Eagles, all four weights saw decreases in sales. The amount of sales drop increased as you went from the 1 oz coin down to the 1/10 oz coin. These 2004 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagles had a mintage figure that was about 1,400 coins fewer than the year before. The drop was more dramatic than the 1 oz coin’s loss of just over 100 coins, but not as dramatic as the 1/10 oz coin’s nearly 5,000 coin drop.
On the obverse of 2004 Proof American Gold Eagle Coins is the image of Lady Liberty. This design debuted in 1907 on the $20 Gold Double Eagle circulation coin from the United States Mint. It remained in circulation through 1933 and is widely regarded as one of the nation’s best designs.
The reverse of 2004 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle coins features a family of bald eagles. The male eagle is shown flying above the family nest as a female eagle offers shelter under her wings to a hatchling.
These 2004 1/4 oz Proof American Gold Eagle Coins have PF70 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered perfect and showcase full, original mint luster with no detracting flaws. The UCAM label denotes strong, frosted designs and deeply-mirrored, clear background fields.
