In 1905, Saint-Gaudens was not only the most prominent sculptor in the country, he was one of the most important artists of any kind. Directly embodying the spirit of the American Renaissance, Saint-Gaudens was a colossal figure in the fine arts world whose influence reached across the continent. Upon hearing of Roosevelt’s desire for a reworking of the nation’s coinage, Saint-Gaudens readily agreed to take up the challenge and began work on the Double Eagle $20 gold piece that would eventually bear his name.
Saint-Gaudens passed away before he could complete designs for the entire run of American coins, but he did leave us with his masterpiece. The Double Eagle’s obverse is taken directly from his monument to General William T. Sherman in New York’s Central Park. It depicts Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer from out of a rising sun, hair flowing, with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. The inscription Liberty is boldly struck above her head. The reverse of the coin captures a bold American eagle in flight above the rays of a rising sun, with the inscriptions “United States of America” and “Twenty Dollars” arching across the top. The Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is a dazzling coin and a powerful testament to a nation growing into its power.
Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles were minted from 1907 through 1933 in Philadelphia (no mintmark), San Francisco (“S” mintmark), and Denver (“D”), are composed of .90% gold yielding .9675 troy ounces of pure gold per coin, and measure 34mm in diameter.

OverallI wanted one of these for a while and finally decided to stop wanting and just get it. So I did but for some reason me and debit cards never seem to get along. Well after 3 calls to my bank and finally getting things in line my order went though. Provident's customer service is the best I have ever dealt with. The coin itself was described as VF or better and YES IT IS! I couldn't believe what I seen when opening the well packaged box that arrived just 2 and a half days after placing my order. I received a 1908 no motto Philly minted coin. That I would say would at least come back a 50 if graded. I received exactly what I was hoping to get and have already placed another order with Provident. Provident has been the best dealer that I have done business with to date. Looking forward to doing more business in the future.
