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.

St. Gaudens. High Relief, Roman Numerals. Wire Rim. Extremely well struck and lustrous. The eye appeal is exceptional as the grade-defining markets are limited to the reverse below the eagle. The wire rims are free from the rim dings that often plague this issue.
St. Gaudens. High Relief, Roman Numerals. Flat Rim. A beautiful Gem example of this American numismatic classic. The strike is very sharp and the surfaces are stunning with original soft satiny luster that shows a very faint greenish accent. There are very few marks and they are quite trivial and in no way detract from the excellent eye appeal of this outstanding High Relief.
St. Gaudens. Popular first year Saint with regular numerals.
St. Gaudens. High Relief, Roman Numerals. Flat Edge. Extremly well struck with beautiful satiny mint luster and minimal marks. Flat edge coins are actually scarcer than wire edge pieces although both seem to trade at the same levels.
A pleasing final-year $20 Liberty with a sharp strike and crisp mint luster.
