The history of the Liberty Gold Double Eagle

Before Liberty Gold Double Eagles were minted, the $10 Gold Liberty Eagle was the highest denomination of U.S. coins. When the California Gold Rush began in 1848, the greatly increased domestic supply of Gold prompted Congress to create new denominations of Gold American coins. The Liberty Gold Double Eagle was one of the new American coins minted in 1850, and it is called a Double Eagle because it is twice the legal tender value of the $10 Gold Eagle. These Liberty Gold coins are also known as Liberty Coronet Double Eagles because the obverse features a profile of Lady Liberty designed by U.S. Mint Chief Engraver James B. Longacre.

Why invest in Liberty Gold Double Eagles?

Apmex is very good about special requests, so don't be shy about inquiring about a year or some other needful thingy. Often as not, they deliver better than you expect. My latest double eagle was in amazing condition, very little wear, and was in the year block I love the most - the 1870s thru 80s. And fast shipping.

I bought 10 and used the order form's request box for the first time. I asked for a variety of years and mints if that was reasonable from APMEX's end. I received 10 different, not the six or seven I expected.

Pros

I believe these gold coins are a great way to actually own a U.S. currency at a reasonable rate to the actual price of gold.

I ran a little test to see where I should buy old circulated gold coins. I bought three coins from three different places for about the same price. One from APMEX, one from an online auction, and one from a local a coin show. I was most worried about getting ripped off by the online auction sight but all three coins acid tested above 18kt. The online and coin show coins are in very nice condition and very beautiful. The APMEX coin I received was clean and shiney but pretty beat up. I never would of bought it if I could of seen a picture of it first. From now on I will only buy old circulated gold coins that I can see before I buy. I will continue to buy new coins coins from APMEX because I get the price I want and they arrive safely and in beautiful condition.

Pros

  • Convenient
  • Safe

Cons

  • Poor Condition

Collect Liberty Gold Double Eagles to collect a piece of history resulting from the Gold Rush.

Buy Liberty Gold Double Eagles minted from 1850 until 1907, if you want a piece of tangible history that was a direct result of the California Gold Rush. Before the minting of Liberty Gold coins, about 300,000 people rushed to California in search of Gold after hearing of its discovery at Sutter’s Mill in Coloma, California, in 1848. The bill to fabricate Gold Double Eagle coins was introduced by the United States Congress in February 1849 to make use of this influx of Gold, and the first coins hit the market in 1850. When you order Gold Eagle coins, you can hold a piece of history in your hands.
