To say that the 1903 Gold Quarter Eagle struck in Proof is a rarity is truly an understatement. With a total mintage of only 197 coins, locating one of these coins is a feat that can only be accomplished by a few lucky individuals. Out of the 197 Quarter Eagles struck in Proof during 1903, only 64 of them have been graded in Proof 64. That means that this coin has tremendous absolute rarity and condition rarity!
Designed by Christian Gobrecht, the Liberty Head Gold Quarter Eagle was minted from 1840 to 1907. Proof examples of the Liberty Head Gold Quarter Eagle were struck in less than 50 of its 67 years of mintage. With Proof mintages of these coins never exceeding 200 in a single year, examples of this gold coin are truly difficult to come by.
