Buy $20 Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle (Extremely Fine) Varied Year

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle was the last $20 gold piece design in U.S. coinage, and is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin ever produced in America. Gainesville Coins offers raw Random Date Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles in XF (extremely fine) condition at very competitive prices.

Each coin is .900 fine gold and contains 0.9765 troy ounce of actual gold weight (AGW). These common date coins have not been professionally graded, but rather have been sorted "by eye" into their respective categories. (Stock photo is for reference only.)

The Extremely Fine (abbreviate XF or sometimes EF) grade determination made by our numismatic staff means these random date coins show very little wear to the most important relief elements.

Background About the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle

President Theodore Roosevelt was the "godfather" of this gorgeous coin, when he personally commissioned famed sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to rejuvenate the "moribund" coinage of the United States. After much resistance from the Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, Charles Barber, and several revisions to the original high-relief design, the Saint-Gaudens double eagle gold coin began production in 1907.

The Saint-Gaudens design was used until 1933, when the U.S. stopped producing gold coinage altogether (and even began confiscating privately owned gold). This has made double eagles much more desirable now that they haven't been minted in over 80 years.

The design went through functional changes after the artist's death. The year-date, once expressed in cumbersome Roman numerals, was switched to the more familiar Arabic notation. The coin's original wire rim and high relief were adjusted, and the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" was added permanently in 1908.

More recently, the iconic Saint-Gaudens motif has been slightly modified and restruck for the American Gold Eagle coin.

Coin Design by Saint-Gaudens

The design features a confident Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer, the olive branch of Peace in one hand, and the torch of Freedom in the other. Behind her are the rays of a new day breaking over the mountains and over the U.S. Capitol in the background. The year of issue is placed in the bottom right corner while the legend "LIBERTY" is placed at the top rim.

On the reverse, an American Bald Eagle is shown in flight, soaring high above a dawning sun. The motto "In God We Trust" found near the bottom rim was added in 1908 after public outcry over its exclusion. The face value of "Twenty Dollars" and the legend "United States of America" appear above the eagle's wings.

Keep in mind that the stock photo shown is not necessarily the actual coin you will receive.
