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.

Surprisingly enough, there was another huge drop in mintage this year as well. In fact, it was even bigger than last year at nearly 82%! This makes 1988 $10 gold eagles one of the lowest mintages of the series at only 49,000 pieces. They were once again poorly handled at the mint, and only 3.2% have graded MS70 at NGC. (6/2016)
