Description & Analysis

First struck in 1986, Gold Eagles are one of the world's most popular ways to buy gold. The coins are available in 1/10oz, 1/4oz, 1/2oz, and 1oz sizes, with face values of $5, $10, $25, and $50, respectively.

2006 marked the 20th anniversary of the gold eagle series. This led to an increase in mintage of over 11,000 coins to 47,092 pieces.

Many of these were released in a special set limited to 10,000 that included a regular proof $50 eagle as well as a reverse proof $50 eagle. The reverse proof coins were only released in this set and therefore all qualify for the "EAGLE 20TH ANNIVERSARY" label, whereas the proof needs to be submitted in the mint sealed box in order to get the designation.

The quality for one of the mint's first reverse proof coins was once again quite good, with near 71% earning the grade of PF70. (6/2016)
