Highlights of this Coin:

  • Contains .9675 ounces of .900 fine gold
  • Has a face value of $20
  • Individual coins ship in protective flips
  • Comes in "MS62" condition
  • Graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation
  • Features the iconic Saint-Gaudens design seen on many coins today

About the Double Eagle:

In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt lamented that America’s coinage had become stale in appearance. The four major gold coins, in particular, had gone decades without any significant change. Roosevelt had recently examined the Smithsonian Institution’s collection of ancient coins and was impressed by their beauty – especially those struck in high relief. With this in mind, the President asked famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens if he could overhaul the Double Eagle.
 
As requested, Saint-Gaudens submitted an innovative design in extremely high relief. The sculptor was apparently more concerned with form than function; his prototypes required an immense amount of striking pressure. The coins, while stunning in appearance, had to be struck nine times with a special medal press! This was completely impractical for mass production. Just two dozen of these initial “Ultra High Relief” Double Eagles were made in 1907; they have sold at auction for over $2,000,000 each!
 
Later that year, the coin was modified so that each piece could be struck with just one blow of the dies. This proved to be a necessary adjustment, as there was intense worldwide demand for the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle. Millions of pieces were requested by banks, institutions and even foreign governments. The $20 Saint was not just a popular form of money in America; it was one of the world’s preferred ways to own gold.
