One of the most iconic and sought after US coins of all time, the $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle was minted between 1849 and 1907. Designed by respected engraver James B. Longacre, each Double Eagle was struck from from 90% gold and 10% copper which was intended to increase the coins durability during circulation. The coin has an actual gold weight (AGW) of .9675 oz.
The obverse shows a portrait of Liberty wearing a coronet with her hair cascading down her neck. Around the rim are 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies with the year of minting at the base. The reverse is filled by Longacre's majestic bald eagle with wings spread in flight. Double Eagles minted between 1850-1866 have “TWENTY D” but no motto on the reverse, those struck between 1866-1876 have the motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” added and coins minted between 1877-1907 have the face value changed to “TWENTY DOLLARS”.
