Pre-1933 Gold:
The U.S. Mint issued its first Gold coins in 1795. During the height of the Great Depression in 1933, President Franklin Roosevelt prohibited American citizens from holding monetary Gold. He ordered all Gold coins be returned to the U.S. Treasury, where millions were melted into Gold and then cast into Gold bars. This was an unprecedented act to help fight the Great Depression. By doing so, many collectible Gold coins were affected and the course of history for monetary Gold was changed forever.

These federal government recalls and meltdowns made these previously common Gold coins very rare. Today, the surviving Pre-1933 Gold U.S. coins are fixed at an extremely limited supply. This fact has made Pre-1933 Gold coins some of the most desirable items among investors and collectors. APMEX is proud to offer a superb selection of these harder-to-find classic coins. The historical significance of these coins is vitally important and will provide diversity and significance to any investment or collection.

$20 Gold Coin Design:
Several changes were made to the $20 Liberty Double Eagle design during the years the series was in production. Coins minted from 1850-1866, known as Type I coins, do not have the motto "In God We Trust" on the reverse. After the Civil War, in 1866, this motto was added to the coin, characteristic of the Type II design. The final change occurred in 1877, when the denomination was expressed as "TWENTY DOLLARS", rather than "TWENTY D." as used previously, resulting in the Type III design.

Important Note:
Dates on these random year coins will be of our choosing and may or may not vary, determined by stock on hand.

Collect Liberty Gold Double Eagles featuring the art of U.S. Mint Chief Engraver James B. Longacre.

The Liberty Gold Double Eagle is just one of the many coins James B. Longacre designed as U.S. Mint Chief Engraver from 1844 until 1869. The Gold Eagle coins feature his profile portrait of Lady Liberty; and, it is engraved portraits that he is best known for in his private art endeavors, as well. Before becoming Chief Engraver and designing Liberty Gold coins, Longacre’s engraved illustrations of noted Americans such as President James Madison and President Andrew Jackson graced the pages of books sold throughout the United States. Browse the inventory of American coins to find other U.S. coins designed by Longacre, such as the Indian Head Cent (1859-1909) and the Shield Nickel (1866-1883).

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.

The Liberty Gold Double Eagle was the first Double Eagle Gold coin design and was minted from 1850 to 1907.

$20 Gold Double Eagle

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

I had never purchased an older coin from APMEX before and was uncertain what to expect...especially since it was "cleaned". The coin is in good shape, however, extremely pitted. Because I am new to collecting I would be interested in finding out the cause. Beautiful coin though...I'll be buying more.

I've always loved US coins, with these first and foremost. This particular coin was an 1882 S. Doesn't look as though it was cleaned, and is in excellent condition! I will be buying more!

Amazing condition for average cleaned

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.

Coins exactly as described.

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.
