The Wells Fargo Gold Hoard is one of the finest U.S. gold hoards ever discovered! These coins were hidden in sealed bags for more than 50 years and survived many significant events in American history including the confiscation of gold beginning in 1933.
Minted from 1907-1933, these $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coins contain .9675 oz of gold. This second year issue has been authenticated and graded as Gem Brilliant Uncirculated MS-66 by PCGS in a special Wells Fargo holder. This 1908 Saint does not bear the motto "In God We Trust".
In the 1970s these coins were sorted, inventoried and resealed until 1996. Though the seller is not known, the buyer is, who signed a confidentiality agreement which would protect the previous owners. This meeting between owner and purchaser took place at an undisclosed Wells Fargo bank in Nevada. The coins were stored in the same facility that thousands of silver dollars were held during the 1960s and 1970s. Though Wells Fargo never owned these coins at any point in history, their name is used for the pedigree because of where the coins were stored and the location of the agreement.
