A History of the 1/4 oz. Gold Eagle Type 2 Coin

The Gold Bullion Act of 1985, passed by Congress and signed into law by President Ronald Reagan, authorized the United States Mint to begin producing 22-karat Gold American Eagle coins. The first of these coins were released to the public in 1986, allowing Americans to purchase and add U.S.-backed gold to their portfolios. The Gold American Eagle coin is produced in four denominations—one-ounce, half-ounce, quarter-ounce, and tenth-ounce—all bearing the same iconic design. The coin took the world gold market by storm, quickly becoming one of the top-selling gold bullion coins in the world.

The 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle Type 2 Coin Design

The Obverse Gold Eagle Design: Lady Liberty

When the time came to reintroduce gold coinage to the American public, the choice for an obverse (front) design became clear: the celebrated Lady Liberty design by renowned sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. Considered by many to be the most beautiful U.S. coin design ever released, Saint-Gaudens’ Liberty graced the $20 Double Eagle Gold Coin from 1907 to 1933. So iconic is this design (and so celebrated its designer) that the Double Eagle is often referred to as the “Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle.”

In Saint-Gaudens vision of Liberty, the female personification of America stands proudly in full figure with a torch in one hand and an olive branch in the other. Behind her, the Capitol building is displayed along with a burst of sunrays.

The Reverse Gold Eagle Type 2 Design: Eagle Profile

When the Gold American Eagle turned 35, the time came for the U.S. Mint to retire the original reverse (back) design and introduce an all-new vision of gold ownership to the American people.

First released in mid-2021, the “Type 2” Gold American Eagle reverse design features an incredibly detailed close-up profile of a bald eagle. Created by designer Jennie Norris, this image invokes the strength, power, and fierce independent spirit of the United States. Inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and IN GOD WE TRUST, as well as the coin’s precious metal content, weight, and legal-tender denomination.
