The history of 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles
Production of 1/4 oz Gold American Eagles was made possible by the Gold Bullion Act of 1985, which was passed by the United States Congress and signed by President Ronald Reagan. Gold Eagle coins went into production in 1986 with the stipulation they must be produced with Gold only from new Gold mines located in the United States. These Gold coins have a main distinction: The American Eagles are the only U.S. Mint Gold bullion coins guaranteed for purity, weight and content by the United States government. Though Gold Eagles are legal tender complete with a face value, the price of Gold Eagle coins is determined by the premium plus the spot price of Gold, which is different than the face value.
