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.

In 1998 the spot price of gold began dropping and therefore the $5 proof gold eagle saw its first mintage increase since 1994. Quality was a bit better this year as well, with some 38% earning the top grade. (6/2016)
