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.

For the first two years of gold eagle production, no 1/10oz $5 gold eagle proofs were struck. This changed in 1988 when the mint struck 143,881 of the coins, the most ever sold. Quality was decent for a late 80's proof coin, with nearly 36% earning the grade of PF70UC. (6/2016)
