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.
A well detailed and pleasing example of this early New Orleans Mint 'Twenty'.
Crisp flashy luster and a sharp strike with relatively few marks for the grade and issue. Looks mint state but has just the barest trace of friction. All four digits of the date are doubled. (FS-301)
CAC. Large Date. Scarce in any grade and much scarcer than the Small Date. PCGS has only graded 2 mint state coins and AU coins are far and few between. This example is well struck with minimal marks and none of them are the least bit distracting. A great coin for an advanced collector!
CAC. Very nearly mint state with flashy original gold luster and a strong strike.
Well struck with vibrant yellow-gold luster and far fewer marks than you'd anticipate for the grade. A tough early Type-1 'Twenty'. PCGS has only graded 25 mint state coins and with 'crack-outs', the true number of mint state survivors is certainly less!
Well detailed and problem-free with a trace of yellow-gold luster remaining.
CAC. Flashy mint luster and a sharp strike with strong eye appeal. Very hard to detect any sign of wear and thus a coin many collectors and dealers would grade mint state!
A pleasing 'S' mint Type-1 'Twenty at an affordable price.
Sharp detail with crisp lustrous surfaces. Popular Civil War date.
A pleasing early 'Twenty' from the San Francisco mint with far better eye appeal than typically seen on early 'S' mints. The strike is sharp and nice apricot gold luster offers a smooth coat to very clean surfaces.
A pleasing example of this better Type-2 'Twenty' with very flashy mint luster and a sharp strike.
Very nearly mint state with crisp brilliant luster and sharp detail.
Closed 3. Very well struck with pleasing surfaces and flashy orange-gold luster.
Well struck and lustrous with none of the heavy abrasions that tend to plague CC 'Twenties'.
CAC. Well struck with very flashy original gold luster off semi proof-like surfaces. Outstanding for the grade and a very tough find with CAC approval.
Flashy mint luster and a sharp strike with much better eye appeal than typically seen on a Type-2 'Twenty'.
Well struck and problem-free with crisp yellow-gold luster. A pleasing example of this scarce Carson City 'Twenty'.
Crisp luster and a sharp strike with a touch of semi proof-like reflectivity to the fields. The marks that define the grade are minor chatter that doesn't harm the excellent eye appeal of this CC 'Twenty'.
