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.

The mint sold less than half the number of $50 proof gold eagles in 2012 as they had in 2011. This issue of only 23,630 coins was the lowest-mintage $50 proof gold eagle to date. Quality was only decent for such a recent coin, with just over two-thirds grading PF70UC. (6/2016)
