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 1986, mint state gold eagles were struck in all four sizes, but only $50 gold eagles were struck in proof. They proved extremely popular, as evidenced by the mintage of 446,290 coins. This total is three times as much as any other date. Quality was decent for the mid 1980's, with 13% earning the grade of PF70UC at NGC. (6/2016)
