In the early 1900s, the federal government pressed the United States Mint and US Treasury to begin redesigning American currency. American coinage redesigns started with the Gold US Eagle Series in 1907. The $10 Eagle was redesigned in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and the $20 Double Eagle was redesigned in the same year by Saint-Gaudens. Bela Lyon Pratt redesigned the Half Eagle and Quarter Eagle a year later in 1908.
The 1907 Gold $20 Liberty Double Eagle was a transitional release in the Double Eagle Series, bridging the gap between the 57-year James B. Longacre design and the debut of the new Lady Liberty design from Augustus Saint-Gaudens that would feature on the coins for the final 26 years.
The obverse side of 1907 Pre-33 Gold Liberty Double Eagles comes with a left-profile portrait of Lady Liberty. Known as the Liberty Head or Liberty Coronet design, the image was modified in 1849 by James B. Longacre and based upon Christian Gobrecht’s Liberty Coronet design from 1838 that was already in use at the time on the Eagle, Half Eagle, and Quarter Eagle.
On the reverse face of 1907 Gold Liberty Double Eagles is a depiction of the heraldic eagle of the United States. Longacre created this version of the seal in 1849 and it featured only on the Double Eagles in the Gold US Eagle Series. It includes a front-facing bald eagle supporting the US national shield with stretched wings and a banner flanking both sides of the shield.
