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.

In 1988, the mintage of 1988 $50 gold eagles was less than half of the number struck the prior year at only 465,000 pieces. Quality also suffered, with only around 3.4% grading MS70. (6/2016)
