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.

Gold prices dipped to a near 5-year low in 2015. Due to this demand for $5 gold eagle coins nearly doubled to almost a million coins, the highest mintage since 1999. Quality dropped quite a bit this year, and only around 56% of 2015 $5 gold eagles submitted graded MS70. (6/2016)

Also of note this year was a very interesting variety first discovered by a grader at NGC. Apparently a 1/10oz collar used on 1/10oz Buffalo coins in 2008 was reused on 2014 $5 gold eagles. This collar had much narrower reeding than is the norm on these pieces, leading to the varieties narrow and wide reeds. Wide reeds are common, whereas the narrow reeds have proven to be quite rare.
