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!
364,666 pieces minted with only 35 or so grading mint state at PCGS and NGC combined. This figure probably includes some 'crack-outs' and 'crossovers'. This example is very well struck with rich yellow-gold luster and just a touch of wear. It is ever so close to being mint state at a fraction of the price.
CAC. Well struck, lustrous and minimally abraided. Nearly mint state.
An attractive and affordable Type-1 "Twenty".
Very popular as both a Civil War date and a Type-1 "Twenty Lib.". This example is well detailed with lustrous yellow-gold surfaces.
A well detailed example of this popular Carson City issue. The surfaces are pleasing with remnants of original mint luster.
Extremely flashy bright gold luster blankets this beautiful Type-2 $20 Lib. The strike is extremely sharp and the marks are minimal and non-distracting. Even with a mintage of a million and a half coins, only 17 have graded higher at PCGS with MS-64 coins bringing $30K to $40K! Super eye appeal and a fabulous coin for the grade.
CAC. Well struck and lustrous with claims to a higher grade.
Well detailed and lustrous with attractive clean surfaces.
Nearly full detail and relatively problem-free with nice lustrous surfaces.

CAC. Roman Numerals, High Relief. Wire Rim. Very well struck with satiny yellow-gold luster and only a very few trivial marks. Excellent eye appeal and far nicer than the typical MS-62!
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.
