1990 $5 Gold Eagle MS69 Certification #90000417, PCGS #9838

Expert Comments

Jaime Hernandez

Most $5 Uncirculated Gold Eagles are common and the mintages are mostly over 165,000. The 1990 $5 Uncirculated Gold Eagle is no exception as it had a higher mintage of about 210,000. Most examples came well struck ranging at about MS69 condition. Perfect MS70 examples are much more difficult to find and graded PCGS MS70 examples will command a significant premium.
