In 1849, the United States created the largest denomination of its circulating gold coins, the Double Eagle. This coin has a face value of $20, twice that of the Eagle. James B. Longacre had the honor of designing the new coin. This long-running series was replaced in 1907.

Below the eagle is the denomination of Twenty Dollars.
