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.

In 2008 there was a huge drop in mintage of the $10 proof gold eagle. In fact, sales dropped by nearly 60% to 18,877 pieces. Quality too dropped this year, to just under 55% PF70UC. (6/2016)
