$20 Double Eagles (Saint Gaudens 1907-1933)
$20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins - The California Gold Rush of 1848 prompted Congress to authorize the mintage of the $20 Double Eagle Gold coin. It offers the highest Gold content of any regular issue U.S. Gold coin of its time and the Saint-Gaudens design is considered by many to be the most beautiful coin of all time.
Commissioned by President Theodore Roosevelt, the obverse features Lady Liberty striding in front of the sun's rays at the dawn of a new day. Her right hand holds aloft a torch, and in her left is an olive branch. The United States Capitol is visible in the lower left of the background, and 46 stars representing the Union states in 1907 run along the coin’s border. The reverse depicts an American eagle soaring above a blazing sun.
