The history of the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle
The man behind the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, was born in Dublin in 1848 to a French father and Irish mother, who immigrated to New York when he was six months old. The designer of this Gold collectible American Eagle was first an apprentice to a cameo cutter while taking art classes at the Cooper Union and National Academy of Design. These Double Gold Eagle coins designed by Saint-Gaudens are held in such high regard that in January 2009, the U.S. Mint released ultra high relief Double Eagles, as Saint-Gaudens and President Theodore Roosevelt originally envisioned the Gold coins being produced in 1907. The final mintage of these 2009 Gold coins was just 115,178.

Protect your Gold coins with a number of storage options.
When protecting vintage or commemorative Gold coins, collectors have a number of options to choose from. Some Gold coins, like the Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle, come in a protective flip with two pockets, one for the coin and the other for a label. Just be sure to bow the plastic when inserting or removing the coin so the coin does not rub against the plastic. Another storage option for Gold collectible American Eagle coins, and other vintage coins, is plastic capsules, but make sure they do not contain PVC, a chemical that can soften plastic and damage the coin’s surface.
