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.

1996 was the third straight year of declines in mintage for the 1996 1/2oz gold eagle. And again, it was the third straight decline in quality. Only 2.8% of 1996 $25 gold eagles received the grade of MS70 from NGC. (6/2016)
