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.

As gold prices begin the fall in 1997, gold eagle sales increased. In fact, there was an over 250% increase in sales to some 664,508 pieces struck in 1997. Even with the increase in mintage, the 1997 $50 bullion gold eagle has a higher MS70 percentage at about 9.3%. (6/2016)
