Description & Analysis

First struck in 1986, the Gold Eagle coin program is one of the world's most popular gold coin programs. The coins are available in 1/10oz, 1/4oz, 1/2oz, and 1oz sizes, with face values of $5, $10, $25, and $50, respectively.

In 1988, the mintage of $5 gold eagles once again dropped precipitously. This time by over 420,000 coins! That's less than 20% of the mintage of the 1986. Additionally, quality was poor, and less than 2% of coins submitted to NGC have received the grade of MS70, making it one of the keys in the series. (6/2016)
