Gold coins circulation during Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency

During President Franklin D. Roosevelt's presidency, the United States Mint did not produce any $2.5 gold coins, commonly known as quarter eagles. The last quarter eagle minted for circulation was the Indian Head design, which ceased production in 1929.

However, during Roosevelt's presidency, the United States Mint did mint several commemorative gold coins, including the $2.50 gold "Indian Head" quarter eagle, reissued as part of the commemorative coin program. These coins were issued to mark various events or anniversaries and were primarily sold to collectors rather than circulated in commerce.

It's important to note that the production of gold coins for circulation ceased in 1933 due to Executive Order 6102, which prohibited the hoarding of gold coin, gold bullion, and gold certificates by U.S. citizens. This order effectively ended the gold standard in the United States and led to the recall and melting of gold coins, including the quarter eagle.

While no quarter eagles were produced for circulation during Roosevelt's presidency, commemorative gold coins were minted for collectors, and the production of gold coins for circulation resumed after the end of World War II.
