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.

2006 was the first year of the burnished silver and gold eagles. These are coins struck at the West Point Mint on specially prepared blanks and sport a W mint mark. Considering the special handling, they were more expensive than their normal bullion counterparts, and only sold a tenth or so of the non-W coins. However, quality was pretty nice with about 61% obtaining the grade of MS70. (6/2016)
