The Gold Liberty Double Eagle was the first US gold with a denomination of $20 (USD), which would prove to the highest denomination the US would ever issue for circulation use. The Gold Liberty Double Eagle design was in circulation from 1849 to 1906, and arguably its most unique date mark are the 1861 SS Republic Coins. The 1861 Pre-33 $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle SS Republic Coin is currently available to you for purchase online at Silver.com with NGC certification.

In 1861, the SS Republic was transporting $400,000 worth of US gold coins, most of which were 1861 dated $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle coins. The ship sank in the early days of the Civil War and would hold its treasures for more than 130 years. In 2003, a private research team recovered the treasure of 1861 Pre-33 $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle Coins.

At this point in US history, the $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle was the largest denomination of gold coin ever issued by the US, and remains the largest ever in circulation. Available since 1849 when a handful of proofs were struck, Americans were hoarding the Gold Double Eagle in 1861 as the threat of the Civil War loomed on the horizon. That makes these specimens are very rare chance to get early Pre-33 $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagles.

On the obverse of these 1861 Pre-33 $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagles is the first design used in the series. The images for the Gold Liberty Double Eagles were created in 1849 by James B. Longacre and eventually featured three subtypes, each representing a different reverse change. This is the only obverse image used in this series of Double Eagles and it features Liberty in left-profile relief surrounded by 13 stars with the date mark below.

The reverse of 1861 Pre-33 Liberty Double Eagles features the first subtype design. The Great Seal of the United States of America is featured without the national motto engraving and a face value marking of “twenty D” rather than the later “twenty dollars.”

These 1861 Pre-33 $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagles have Mint State 62 certifications from the NGC. Coins in this condition showcase impaired luster, clusters of small contact marks possible, noticeable hairlines, and generally acceptable eye appeal.

In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash.
