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 1987, the $5 gold eagle was no longer new, and therefore the mintage dropped by over 300,000 coins year over year. Quality dropped a bit as well, as evidenced by the fact that only around 5.6% of 1987 $5 eagles submitted to NGC have received an MS70 grade. (6/2016)
