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.
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.
S.S. Central America Gold Foil Label. 20c Narrow Serif. Super flashy and spot-free with a needle-sharp strike.
S.S. Central America. 20A Spiked Shield. Here's a nice mint state Type-1 "Twenty" from the S.S. Central America Shipwreck Hoard. It has the special PCGS gold foil label and comes with the elaborate faux book entitled, "America's Greatest Treasure Ship". The coin itself has rich orange-gold luster, a great strike and fabulous mint 'bloom".
Solid detail with pleasing straw-gold surfaces. A better early 'Twenty'.
Well detailed and problem-free with a trace of yellow-gold luster remaining.
The first year for Type-2 $20 Libertys with the motto IN GOD WE TRUST added above the eagle on the reverse.
A pleasing example of this better Type-2 'Twenty' with very flashy mint luster and a sharp strike.
Nearly a million made yet rarely seen in mint state with the finest graded at PCGS being a single MS-63 coin. This example is well struck with bright yellow-gold luster and strong eye appeal for the grade.
Well struck and lustrous with none of the heavy abrasions that tend to plague CC 'Twenties'.
CAC. Strong detail with nice lustrous semi proof-like surfaces. A scarce double eagle from the popular Carson City mint.
Well struck and problem-free with crisp yellow-gold luster. A pleasing example of this scarce Carson City 'Twenty'.
CAC. Solid detail with pleasing problem-free surfaces.
CAC. Vibrant peach-gold luster and a sharp strike.
Well struck with nice original lustrous surfaces.
CAC. A beautiful near-Gem with super flashy luster and a great strike. Just 13 have graded finer with a big jump in price to an MS-65 coin.
St. Gaudens. High Relief, Roman Numerals. Flat Edge. Extremely well struck with beautiful satiny mint luster and nice clean surfaces. Flat edge coins are actually scarcer than wire edge pieces although both seem to trade at the same levels.
