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.

As the financial crisis deepened in 2008, sales of gold numismatic products from the mint dropped off quite a bit. In fact, in 2008 the mintage of proof $25 gold eagles was only about half of the prior year at only 22,602 coins. Quality was good this year however, with nearly 62% earning the top grade at NGC.
