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.
Brilliant sharply struck surfaces have an ample amount of luster still remaining. Abrasions are minor and fewer than one would expect on this issue. The first collectible year "Twenty'.
Pleasant orange-gold well-struck surfaces. There are no major abrasions on an issue that is commonly found with heavy abrasions. Popular second year issue that is the first collectible year.
The first New Orleans mint 'Twenty' with a modest mintage of 141,000. This is a very high-end XF that many would grade AU. The detail is bold and the pleasing problem-free surfaces are highly lustrous.
Brilliant yellow-gold surfaces are sharply struck. The look is very clean with remarkably few abrasions. Just the slightest touch of 'rub' keep this example from being mint state.
A well detailed and pleasing example of this early New Orleans Mint 'Twenty'.
Exceptionally clean surfaces as these early 'Twenties' tend to come with excessive bag marks.
Small Date. Orange-gold surfaces sport a sharp strike on this early type-1 'Twenty'. While not noted, the date is repunched, an interesting variety on approximately 5% of known pieces.
This Choice XF Type-1 double eagle exhibits solid detail and original lustrous surfaces.
Ideal original surfaces with a great 'old-time' look. Remarkably, there are few abrasions with none major. Due to the S. S. Central America hoard, mint state examples are relatively common while circulated pieces are difficult to locate. This is the lowest grade given by PCGS for this issue and the lone example in this grade.
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!
A pleasing lightly circulated example of this Type-1 or 'no motto' $20 Liberty.
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!
Strong detail with pleasing lustrous surfaces. Popular Civil War date.
Sharp detail with crisp lustrous surfaces. Popular Civil War date.
CAC. Well detailed with pleasing surfaces on this popular Civil War date that typically comes heavily abraded.
These early 'S' mint $20 Liberties saw heavy circulation and tend to come well worn with heavy bag marks. This is a very clean coin for the grade.
Very nearly mint state with crisp brilliant luster and sharp detail.
Solid well-detailed surfaces that display remnants of luster and a clean look. Locals often tested coins during this time period for proper content. This coin is free of such marks. A popular "CC' issue with only 26,900 minted.
Well struck and lustrous with none of the heavy abrasions that tend to plague CC 'Twenties'.
