Gold Eagles - $50
1987 EAGLE G$50 MS

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.

1987 saw a large drop in mintage as well, although it was smaller percentage-wise than the $5, $10, and $25 coins. Quality was improved this year, with just over 8% garnering the grade of MS70. (6/2016)
