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.

During the financial crisis, numismatic coins did not sell as well as bullion, leading to the lowest mintage for a proof $5 gold eagle up to this point at 28,116 coins. Quality returned however, with near 62% earning the highest grade. (6/2016)
