We are proud to offer first-edition $20.00 fine gold Saint-Gaudens coins produced by the US Mint prior to 1933. These professionally cleaned historic pieces are a beautiful addition to the portfolios of investors and collectors who cherish authentic vintage coins.
The Saint-Gaudens $20.00 gold-piece comes with a story of delightful intrigue. This exquisite coin was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens and first minted in ultra-high relief in 1907 with 90% fine gold, 3% silver, and 7% copper. The first update on the design followed the next year in 1908 to make the coins more flat, stackable, and acceptable for use as currency. These 1907 coins easily top the $10,000 price in circulated grades, but a well-persevered 1907 Saint-Gaudens $20.00 coin can reach nearly a half million dollars.
In 1933, it was decided that gold would no longer be used for currency. Almost all the 1933 Saint-Gaudens $20.00 gold pieces were recalled and melted by the US mint, but a few were stolen and traded. So far, 20 coins have been accounted for, but no one really knows how many coins still exist beyond the two coins that the Department of Treasury kept for historical value. The only 1933 Saint-Gaudens $20.00 gold piece to be legally sold at auction garnered $7,590,020.00 in 2002. Many investors and collectors obtain a particular pleasure from collecting these gorgeous gold coins.
Please note that your vintage coin will be personally selected for you by the staff at Silver.com. The coin is guaranteed to be professionally cleaned and bear a mint date between the years 1907 and 1933.
