The history of the Liberty Gold Double Eagle

Following the discovery of Gold in northern California, the California Gold Rush of 1849 sent a steady flow of Gold to the U.S. Mint. The Gold Double Eagle coin was created as a $20 coin that was worth “double” the existing $10 Eagle coin. The $20 Liberty Gold coin was minted from 1850 to 1907, when the Double Eagle Gold coin was redesigned at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1866, the U.S. Mint added the motto “In God We Trust” to the Gold Double Eagle coin, an important subtype for collectors of the Liberty Gold Double Eagle.

Why invest in Liberty Gold Double Eagle coins?

The Liberty Gold Double Eagle is one of the most popular American Gold coins among collectors, with 143 different issues, some of which are extremely rare and highly sought after. The Gold Double Eagle coin is distinctive for being the largest regular-issue U.S. coin in terms of both Gold value and denomination. Many investors value the Liberty Gold Double Eagle for its combination of Gold content and increasing rarity. With so many unique issues, collecting a full Liberty Gold coin set is a special accomplishment. Additionally, many of these U.S. Mint coins have been melted over the years for their Gold, adding to their rarity and numismatic value.

With the Liberty Gold Double Eagle, trace U.S. history through the Civil War and westward expansion.

The Liberty Gold Double Eagle series is notable for collectors because it contains extremely rare Gold coins as well as more common issues that can be purchased for a small premium over the spot price of Gold. The Liberty Gold coin can be broadly separated into three subtypes: coins without a motto on the reverse (1849-1866), coins with a motto and with “TWENTY D.” on the reverse (1866-1876) and coins with a motto and “TWENTY DOLLARS” on the reverse (1877-1907). The Liberty Gold Double Eagle coin is also referred to as the Coronet Double Eagle. The U.S. Mint struck multiple versions at different mints, featuring the different mintmarks, adding to collectors' fascination for this coin.

I initially received this coin with several scratches & dents all around the rim & obverse. I then sent in for a replacement. I was sent one with still dents (1 rim dent and 1 on the obverse) and a couple scratches but not near as many. It is an improvement for the one I initially received though.

Gorgeous Double Eagles

By  JStacker

from IL

5.0

What can I say, the $20 Gold Double Eagles are beautiful in superb AU condition. The last 2 I purchased I was extremely surprised as my last purchases of the double eagles came in Flips, but these last 2 were graded (AU55 PCGS and AU58 NGC) and slabbed. A very nice surprise. Thank you APMEX made many purchases with APMEX and happy with them all.

Reclaim history with a Gold Double Eagle coin, which was once illegal to hold in the United States.

Surviving Liberty Gold Double Eagle coins are prized by collectors because in 1933 in response to the Great Depression, the U.S. government outlawed the holding of monetary Gold. Once-common Gold Double Eagle coins were turned in and melted down by the millions. Today, a Liberty Gold coin that is considered rare will sell at a high premium over the spot price of Gold. The U.S. Mint has made modern American Eagle coins since 1986, but for lovers of history, the original circulating $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle is special.
