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 very attractive example of this first type $20 Liberty without IN GOD WE TRUST on the reverse. All the design elements are sharp and there is vibrant mint luster. Even with a glass it is difficult to find any wear on this coin!
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. Well struck, lustrous and minimally abraided. Nearly mint state.
CAC. Very nearly mint state with flashy original gold luster and a strong strike.
