This coin was struck from Unfinished Proof dies and is Ultra Rare.
In 1999, the U.S. Mint used all of the Mint State dies used to produce the Gold Eagle coins and had to use the Proof 'W' dies for a very small fraction of the last Gold Eagle coins minted in 1999.

Comments about 1999-W 1/4 oz Gold American Eagle (Rare W Variety):
Truly an "American classic coin" to own with a ultra rare story about this beautiful coin that was made in low numbers. I bought this same coin in "BU MS-60-63" and housed it in a coin container air tight brought from Apmex which carries a nice inventory of everything you could use to keep all your coins in a safe and moisture environment. Check it out! James D.
