The history of the Gold Double Eagle
The Gold Double Eagle can claim the title of most popular U.S. Gold coin, solely based on the sheer volume struck over the years. More Gold was struck into Double Eagle Gold coins than all other denominations combined. In fact, of all U.S. Mint Gold coins struck for currency from 1795 to 1933, just under one-half were Gold Double Eagles, and 78 percent of the Gold used by the U.S. Mint during this time was used in $20 pieces. Regular production of Liberty Gold Eagle coins commenced with over 1 million struck in Philadelphia and 141,000 struck at the New Orleans Mint.

Buy vintage Gold coins and hold a piece of history – carefully.
When you buy Liberty Gold Eagle coins and other vintage Gold coins, the impulse to hold a coin that was in circulation more than 100 years ago may be irresistible, but for the sake of your coin, handle with care. When you pick up your Gold Double Eagle, first wash your hands and only hold the coin by the edges, between your thumb and forefinger, protecting the coin from the natural oils on your skin. Some collectors of U.S. Mint Gold coins, and other vintage coins, go as far as wearing cotton gloves when handling their vintage coins. When examining your vintage Gold coins, do so over a soft surface like a towel, cloth or jeweler’s tray, just in case you drop the coin.
Communicate with other collectors about your vintage Gold coins.
Knowing the elements of Gold coins will help you communicate with other collectors and better understand the value of your collection. The obverse of a U.S. Mint Gold coin, and other coins, is the front, or “heads,” side of a coin and usually features the date and primary design, and the reverse is the “tails” side. The outer edge of a Gold Double Eagle and other coins can be plain, reeded, lettered or decorated. The rim of Liberty Gold Eagle coins, and all coins, is the raised portion of both sides of the coin which protects the design.
