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.

Gold prices continued to drop into 1998, leading to the second largest mintage of $5 gold eagles ever. With the increased mintage came great quality, and about a quarter of those submitted to NGC received the grade MS70. (6/2016)
