APMEX offers a superb selection of $20 Liberty Double Eagles. The California gold rush prompted Congress to authorize the mintage of the $20 Double Eagle. It offers the highest gold content of any regular issue U.S. gold coin of its time period and possesses one of the most visually captivating reverses of any U.S. coin.
The obverse features a classic Greek rendition of Lady Liberty, while the reverse depicts a fearless eagle with wings extended to their full span. Beginning in 1849, the $20 Double Eagle was minted in three types: the Type I “No Motto” variety, the Type II variety with “Twenty D” on the reverse and the Type III variety with “Twenty Dollars” fully spelled out.
