The PCGS “first strike” or “FS” designation signals a coin’s position in the year’s production run, and PCGS-certified 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle Coins are from the earliest production run for its year of issue.

If being ahead of the pack matters to you, consider PCGS FS Gold Eagle Coins.
The second aspect concerns the coin's condition and grade. The “MS” in MS-70 stands for “Mint State.” This is a highly sought-after condition only awarded to coins that are in pristine shape. MS-70 FS Gold Eagles bear no signs of wear. They are carefully preserved in sonically sealed plastic cases to retain their immaculate condition. Perfection is difficult to come by in today’s world. But if you seek it in your coins, then look for the MS-70 grade.

The 2018 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Design
The Obverse Gold Eagle Design: Lady Liberty
Artist Augustus Saint-Gaudens received a challenge from no less an authority than the president of the United States, Teddy Roosevelt, to help create a U.S. coin reminiscent of the Greek and Roman coins of ages past. Saint-Gaudens did not disappoint, creating the immediately iconic Lady Liberty. His masterpiece was used on the Gold Double Eagle from 1907 to 1933, then resurrected for use on the obverse side of the 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Coin available here.
Lady Liberty marches proudly toward the coin viewer. Her depiction evokes the prestige and stature Augustus Saint-Gaudens set out to achieve: the imagery—including the sun rays and stars—favor that of the Greek and Roman coins from centuries ago. Its issue year and the word “LIBERTY” also appears on the obverse.
The Reverse Gold Eagle Design: Eagle Family
Miley Busiek’s design of an eagle, its wings spread in equal parts powerful flight and protection, conveys how the magisterial bird came to symbolize our nation. It’s this image that makes the reverse side of the 1/4 oz. Gold American Eagle MS-70 Coin as remarkable as it is. In bold lettering at the top are the words “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.” In a semi-circle along the bottom are the words “1/4 OZ. FINE GOLD ~ 10 DOLLARS.” The phrases “E PLURIBUS UNUM” and “IN GOD WE TRUST” appear on either side of the eagles.
