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, repectively.

Due to the fact that it was the first year of issue, the 1986 $10 gold has the highest mintage of any $10 gold eagle. The coins tend to have hits on them and 70's are rare, with only around 3.3% receiving that grade from NGC. (6/2016)
