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 1996, the mintage of the $10 gold eagle dropped by over 23,000 pieces to 60,318 coins. However, even with that drop, quality remained good as over 8% have graded MS70 at NGC. (6/2016)
