The $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Coin was originally released in 1907 after the Liberty Double Eagle was removed from circulation. It continued to enjoy production until a 1933 legislation abolished the production of all gold currency. It would be the last $20 gold coin ever produced by the United States Mint, consequently, making it a highly valuable collectible among investors and coin enthusiasts today.
Every double eagle coin featured in this collection boasts a gold content of .9675 oz as well a certified MS65 grade by either the NGC or the PCGS. Coins certified with an MS65 grade are in above average condition with only superficial scuffing due to small contact marks. As a preventive measure, all coins have remained sealed in their individual NGC or PGCS certified slab since they were graded.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ artwork for the $20 Double Eagle is among one of the most memorable designs in US currency. Showcased on the front of the coin is Lady Liberty. She is dressed in a classically inspired toga. In one hand, she holds a torch as a symbol of enlightenment and in the other she holds an olive branch as a symbol of peace. She stands poised on a mountain summit, overlooking the Capitol Building. Behind her are rays of sunlight illuminating the background. A ring of stars serves as a frame for Saint Gaudens’ stunning artwork.
Saint-Gaudens chose the bald eagle as his central design element for the reverse of the coin. It is depicted soaring through the skies with radiant beams of sunlight emanating behind it. Printed in an arched heading above the bird are the phrases, “United States of America” and “Twenty Dollars.” Beneath the eagle is the motto, “In God We Trust.” It is worth noting, however, that the motto only appears on coins that were minted after 1908.
With its historical significance and its artistic value, the $20 Saint-Gaudens’ Double Eagle Coin is a priceless asset to any collection or investment.
