Information and History of 2002 $5 Gold Coins
Value of 2002 Five Dollar Gold Coin
The 2002 $5 gold coin is for the most part just valued for its bullion. All that means is that the value of the coin will change based on the current melt value of gold. This coin weighs a tenth of an ounce. So you can divide the current price of gold by ten to get the precious metal value of this coin. Collectors refer to these as AGE or American Gold Eagles. The United States Mint produces these coins every year. The only change is just the year; all the other design elements are the same year to year. The coin can be issued in 2002, 1991, or any other year – you will always see the same features.
