When first struck in 1849, the $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle was the US Mint's highest denomination circulating gold coin. Today it is prized for its rarity and collectibility, especially when graded MS62 by a top tier grading service like NGC or PCGS. Each Gold Double Eagle was minted from .900 fine gold and measures 34mm in diameter with a net fine gold content of 0.9675 troy oz.
The Gold Liberty Double Eagle's obverse features James B. Longacre's timeless Liberty design; the lady in profile wearing a coronet and haloed by 13 stars representing the 13 original colonies, with the date at the foot of the image. The reverse is dominated by a bald eagle and heraldic shield with the legend “E PLURIBUS UNUM” across two ribbons held in the eagle's beak.
Produced between 1849 and 1907 as general circulation coins, Gold Liberty Double Eagles are now among the most popular pre-1933 US gold coins. These fine examples of this majestic coin are graded MS-62 by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation or Professional Coin Grading Service. Each comes in a protective tamper-proof casing to ensure provenance. These $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle coins are of random dates of our choice based on availability.
