The $20 double eagle became a lifesaver when it was approved by Congress in 1849. For many years, the famous gold rushes experienced the difficulty of large transactions with small denominational money. In fact, the largest gold coin's face value was only $10. Imagine all of that valuable change, clinging in your pocket, as you scour the minefields! After about twenty years of being begged, Congress finally approved of new $20 double eagle. The first design was called the Liberty and showcased a portrait of a beautiful woman, representing Lady Liberty. In 1908, the double eagle got a facelift and became the $20 Saint-Gaudens gold coin. The majority of all double eagles were circulated, causing Mint State issues to be scarce. Your Certified $20 St Gaudens earned the high grade of MS64 and is a common date of our choice.
