Just when you thought this thread was running out of steam ... I just double-checked with Charles Jones, and there were 2n Goldens who achieved QAA status in 2012. That is the highest # of any year since 2000. That number was equalled in 2002, 2004, and 2010 ... but no year since 2000 have there been more than 28.
Since 2000, 299 Goldens reached QAA status; but only 200 of them were born after 1999.
Of the 299 Goldens who became QAA, 15 (about 5%) went on to become FC; 19 (about 6%) went on to become AFC.
This information is taken from Charles Jones' website: http://www.undeniablegoldens.com/RecentAllAge.html

Correction: there were 26 new QAA Goldens for 2012, not 28.
