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 mintage of 1987 $10 gold eagles was an astounding 468,311 coins less than the prior year. That difference in mintage is nearly double the next highest mintage figure. Quality was even worse this year, as only about 1.6% have graded MS70 at NGC. (6/2016)
