Liberty $20 Double Eagles - The California Gold Rush of 1848 prompted Congress to authorize the mintage of the $20 Double Eagle Gold coin. The authorization happened in 1849 and the coin entered circulation as American currency in 1850. It holds the highest Gold content of any regularly issued U.S. Gold coin of its time and the original Liberty design was minted for more than 50 years. This is a one-of-a-kind coin in its uniqueness and its place in history.
The obverse features a classic Greek rendition of Lady Liberty, while the reverse depicts a fearless eagle with wings extended to their full span. Beginning in 1849, the $20 Double Eagle was minted in three types: the Type I “No Motto” variety (1850-1866), the Type II variety with “Twenty D” on the reverse (1866-1876) and the Type III variety with “Twenty Dollars” spelled out (1877-1907). The motto “In God We Trust” was added to the coins in accordance with an 1865 Act of Congress. The Gold coin value with Liberty $20 Double Eagles is high.
