Full Description

Graded by the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as Mint State 63, the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle is considered to be in Choice Uncirculated condition: characterized by showing a few distracting contact marks, and a luster that may be impaired

Considered one of the most beautiful coins ever released by the United States—the Augustus Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is truly a marvelous representation of not only history, but American artistry. Minted from 1907 until 1933, the coins have become must have’s for Numismatic collector’s, investors, and fans of American history.

By the end of 1907 the low relief coin were released, showing the date in Arabic numerals rather than Roman. The coin’s design underwent one more change: in 1908 Congress forced the Mint add the motto “In God We Trust,” which Roosevelt had protested against as he thought the addition of the Lord’s name was a debasement.

The timeless appeal of the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is what makes the coin a must have for any Numismatic collector, and even investors to own. Today, the value of the coins ranges from the thousands to the millions! 

Obverse:

Featured on the Obverse of the coin is a representation of liberty with a flowing gown artistically rendered to show movement, and subtle realism. Clutched in her left hand is an olive branch, and in her right a torch is held high; the capital can be seen in the background to the left of Liberty. The first designs also featured the date written in Roman Numerals, but was subsequently changed to show the date as it typical shows in modern coinage.

Reverse:

Shown on the Reverse of the coin, is the eagle design Saint-Gaudens originally intended to show on the cent, but developed it for the $20 coin after learning that by law, an eagle was not allowed to appear on the smaller denomination coin. Saint-Gaudens eagle is shown mid flight, with the beaming sun just barely peaking over the horizon.

se shows the American Eagle flying with the sun blazing behind her back. 'United States of America' and 'Twenty dollars' denomination is also mentioned above the eagle.
