$20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is considered the most beautiful of all United States coinage and is a treasured centerpiece in many numismatic collections.

Born in Dublin, Ireland, but raised in New York City, Augustus Saint-Gaudens became a celebrated sculptor with commissions for Civil War commemorative monuments across the United States. He was ultimately chosen by President Theodore Roosevelt to redesign both the $10 and $20 gold coins despite having been diagnosed with cancer in 1900, which would lead to his death in 1907, the year his coin was introduced.

The stunning obverse shows a victorious Lady Liberty with a torch for enlightenment in one hand and extending peace with an olive branch in the other. Around her can be found various symbols, including a star for each of the states in existence at the time.

The flying eagle on the reverse had been intended for use by Saint-Gaudens on the cent, but worked it for the “double eagle” after learning the law would not permit use of an eagle on the one cent coin. Like the obverse, it has the sun’s golden rays in the background.

Struck in 90 percent gold, the massive coin measures 34 millimeters in diameter and weighs 33.4 grams, giving an actual gold weight of .9675 – almost a full ounce. They superseded the $20 Liberties, minted from 1850 to 1907, as the only other existing $20 coin.

The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is an impressive addition to any portfolio because the inherent numismatic characteristics combine with the bullion power of gold to aid in retaining and increasing their value with both investors and collectors.
