The $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle is as iconic as the California gold rush from which it was born. First minted in 1849, the $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle was produced until 1907 from .900 fine gold containing 0.9675 troy oz of actual pure gold. These magnificent coins measure an impressive 34mm in diameter with a reeded edge.

Designed by the Philadelphia Mint's head engraver, James B. Longacre, the Liberty Gold Double Eagle's obverse shows Liberty in profile wearing a coronet crown, which has led to the coin also being known as the Coronet Gold Double Eagle. Liberty is surrounded by a halo of stars around the coin's edge and the year of minting at the bottom. The reverse depicts a bald eagle with twin ribbons held from its beak, a shield, arrows and olive branch. “E PLURIBUS UNUM” is inscribed across the ribbons.
With so much gold coming from the California gold rush of 1949 the US Mint authorized the $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle be minted using this bullion. Investors today still recognize the importance of Liberty Gold Double Eagles in a diversified portfolio, and collectors recognize the historical value these coins offer.
