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 burnished eagle coins are struck at the West Point Mint on specially prepared blanks and sport a W mint mark. With the financial crisis came a lack of demand for more numismatic items, so the burnished $5 gold eagle mintage dropped by almost 50%. However, nearly 90% of those submitted to NGC graded MS70.
