With nearly a full ounce of gold, these Twenty Dollar Gold Coins or Double Eagles are extremely popular. The Liberty Head design was used from 1849 to 1897
The famous French sculptor, Augustus Saint Gaudens, was commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt to reinvigorate or gold coins and the St. Gaudens Twenty Dollar Gold Coins of 1907 to 1933 were his crowning achievement
Scarce and rare dates abound in both the Liberty Head and the St. Gaudens Twenty Dollar Gold Coin series.
Lustrous, well struck, and problem-free with remarkably clean surfaces for an early 'Twenty'.
CAC. Original lustrous antique gold surfaces without the heavy gauges that plague early New Orleans 'Twenties'. The strike is strong and there is just a touch of 'rub' that keeps this out of a mint state holder! One of the only '51-O 'Twenties' you'll find with strong eye appeal!
Nearly mint state yellow-gold surfaces exhibit a solid strike, ample remnant luster, and a very clean look for an early 'Twenty'. The only recognized overdate in the entire Liberty Head Twenty series and quite desirable. A lofty grade with MS-61 being the highest graded example by PCGS for the variety.

Attractive yellow-gold surfaces that just miss a mint state designation. Very well struck for an issue known for weakness. Surfaces are much cleaner than one would expect and marks are minor and of no major significance. A popular New Orleans Mint date with a mintage of only 35,250. Very elusive at this grade level with only 8 coins graded numerically finer at NGC. A fantastic piece for any collection!
Just light wear on the high points of the design with much of the original luster still evident. The surfaces show lighter abrasions than are typically seen on early 'Twenties' and are have an attractive greenish-gold tint.
Lustrous yellow-gold surfaces that are close to mint state and a solid strike.
Very popular as both a Civil War date and a Type-1 "Twenty Lib.". This example is well detailed with lustrous yellow-gold surfaces.
Well struck with nice yellow-gold surfaces. Abrasions are minimal and minor. A popular Civil War date.
A very attractive example of this better Civil War issue with original frosty luster and cleaner surfaces than typically found for the grade.
Sharply struck with flashy orange-gold luster off semi proof-like surfaces.
Well detailed and lustrous without the heavy contact marks that plague these early 'Twenties'.
From a mintage of just 26,900. This is an attractive Choice AU with vibrant orange-gold luster and almost no sign of wear. The surfaces are nice and less abraded than normally seen on this scarce Carson City 'Twenty'. Housed in an older PCGS holder.
Well struck with rich satiny luster. While there are marks which define the grade; there aren't the very heavy contact marks that plague these early 'Twenties'.
A scarce date that has seen just a few mint state survivors. This example is very attractive with rich lustrous surfaces and just the barest touch of 'rub'. The strike is sharp and the surfaces are devoid of the heavy contact marks that plague this issue.
Nice for the grade with a sharp strike and flashy orange-gold luster.
Well detailed with nice original surfaces. 42,565 minted.
