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.

Sales of the 1oz bullion gold eagle skyrocketed during the financial crisis. In fact they sold over four times as many bullion coins this year. Quality slipped however, as less than a third of those submitted were graded MS70. (6/2016)
