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.
