Description:

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin in the history of United States. These coins are highly sought after by collectors and are a great addition to any investment portfolio.

Each gold coin contains .9675 Troy oz of gold. The reverse of the coin is an iconic image of a bald eagle in flight with "United States of America" and the denomination "Twenty Dollars" above. The obverse is a depiction of Lady Liberty walking with rays of sunshine at her back, holding a torch in one hand, and an olive branch in the other. The edge of the coin has inscribed the motto "E Pluribus Unum."

These gold coins were minted in San Francisco, Denver, and Philadelphia.

Dates for the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle are random and based on availability at the time of order.

President Theodore Roosevelt wanted to make American coinage more aesthetically pleasing. In 1904, sculptor August Saint-Gaudens was appointed to design a new coin. Saint-Gaudens had difficulty in designing the coin based largely on his declining health. Another contributing factor to the delay of the coin was his high relief design was very intricate and complex, making it difficult to produce. 

Saint-Gaudens actually died in 1907, after completing the designs for the eagle and double eagle coin. The designs had yet been approved for production. A few attempts were made to produce the double eagle coin as Saint-Gaudens had originally designed it but the design was too complicated to strike. The Chief Engraver of the Mint, Charles E. Barber, made some changes to the design and lowered the relief so the coin could be struck. 

When released the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle proved to be controversial because the coin omitted the words, "In God We Trust." Despite the change in design and perceived shortcomings, the coin is considered one of the most beautiful coins in the history of American coinage. The 1933 Double Eagle enjoys a mysterious lore among collectors and is one of the most valuable
U.S. coins.
