Gold American Eagle - dates

Post by ps56 » Sat, 02 Mar 2013 05:03:51



I have a couple of the 1oz gold American Eagles - 2012 & 1986
I noticed that the 86 date is in roman numerals,
and the 12 is in "2012" -
What year was the change ?

Roman numerals were used from 1986 to 1991.  From 1992 on, Arabic
numerals have been used.  

I dunno why the change wuz made ... I couldn't find any explanation or
referenced legislation in a quick Google search ...
