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. This was the last year of production for burnished gold eagles, and sales increased to make this the highest mintage for any burnished $25 gold eagle. They were also the highest quality ones, as 85% received an MS70. (6/2016)
