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.

As gold prices began to drop in 1996, mintages increased. Due to this drop, the 1997 issue saw a nearly 80% increase to 108,805 pieces. However, the Mint clearly dropped quality control to meet this demand, and as such, NGC has only graded 19 MS70's for this date, or about 2.5%. (6/2016)
