Value of 2006 Five Dollar Gold Coin

The 2006 $5 gold coin is in most cases just a precious metals product. All that means is that the value of the coin will be different based on the current trading 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 sells these coins every year. The only change is just the year; the rest of the design remains unchanged. The coin can be minted in 2006, 1995, or any other year – you will always see the same features.

The 2006 tenth ounce coin has this written on it: 2006 – Liberty – United States of America – E Pluribus Unum – In God We Trust – 1/10 OZ. Fine Gold ~ 5 Dollars – MB JW. The front or obverse of the coin pictures a woman (Lady Liberty) holding a branch. The back or reverse of the coin has a flying eagle.
