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.

1996 saw a huge jump in mintage from the previous year. In fact it nearly doubled, leaping from 223,025 to just over 400,000. Quality was nice this year as well, and almost 17% have received the grade of MS70, the highest percentage of any $5 gold eagle struck to this date. (6/2016)
