$20 Saint Gaudens Gold Coins NGC/PCGS Certified

Savvy investors and coin collectors know that certified (graded) coins are far more trusted in the marketplace.

All of the $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coins listed here have been graded by PCGS or NGC, the two leading companies that certify coins. This not only ensures that the coin is authentic and has not been altered but also tells the prospective buyer exactly what condition the coin is in.

This is especially important with Saint-Gaudens $20 double eagles. These coins are exceptionally artistic. The design resembles a sculpture, which makes sense given that the designer Augustus Saint-Gaudens was his generation's preeminent sculptor.

The decision by President Theodore Roosevelt to commission Saint-Gaudens to design the double eagle was unprecedented. Not only was he an artist from outside of the U.S. Mint, but Saint-Gaudens possessed no experience working with coin designs. He was famous for his many full-size sculptures, not the intricate art of designing coins. The closest he came to doing so was by creating President Roosevelt's inaugural medal in 1905.

Of course, there are a surprising amount of differences between designing a medal and a coin. The latter requires careful consideration to make sure that the coin is functional. It must stack evenly and include a raised rim to protect the design elements. Unless a coin is a one-time commemorative (which the double eagle was not), it should also easily incorporate the new date for each year of issue.

Saint-Gaudens overlooked all three of these points. He also unfortunately passed away just before the final version of his design was completed. At the time, the new double eagle lacked a typical rim, was too sculpture-like to strike efficiently or stack neatly, and the year-date was in Roman numerals. This made updating the engraving for the date on each year's coin dies overly cumbersome.

The mint's Chief Engraver, Charles Barber, was tasked with fixing these problems so that the design could be used. Perhaps most importantly, he managed to lower the coin's relief without losing the integrity of the design. It still creates an impressive visual effect without the drawbacks associated with Saint-Gaudens's oversights.

As a result of the coin's dramatic relief, however, the high points of the design are especially prone to wear. High-grade examples of Saint-Gaudens double eagles are coveted by collectors.

Moreover, the $20 Saint-Gaudens have a history of being collected (or simply hoarded). This makes distinguishing between the different grades very important to a serious collector. Depending on the grade, the jump in price for a coin that grades slightly higher can be significant.

There are few coins from the 20th century or otherwise that can match the stunning visual effect of the Saint-Gaudens gold double eagle. Shop for Certified $20 Saint Gaudens gold coins graded by PCGS or NGC available online!
