 This year is the 30th anniversary year for the minting of the Gold and Silver Eagles, the first ones having been struck in 1986. The mint produced anniversary sets for the 10th, 20th and 25th years, but so far I have seen no indication they are planning one for this year. Visiting the mint website, usmint.org shows page after page of planned product for this year, but no anniversary set. There is so much product to be released by the mint this year, it would cost a small fortune to buy them all.
