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.

The summer of 2008 saw a huge drop of nearly 20% in gold prices due to the financial crisis. With this drop came increased demand as investors flocked to the perceived security of precious metals. Sales of the bullion $5 gold eagle increased by 115,000 pieces this year, but quality dropped to around 42% MS70. (6/2016)
