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 fall, mintages began to drastically increase. In 1998, the mint sold more than double the number of $25 gold eagles as the previous year. However, the coins are often very low quality. In fact, NGC has only graded 28 1998 $25 gold eagles MS70, the lowest of any date. (6/2016)
