Each of These Extra Fine US Mint $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coins contains .9675 Troy Ounces of Pure Gold! Dates will range from 1907-1933.The most beautiful coin in American history grew out of a president’s trip to a museum. In 1905, Theodore Roosevelt attended an exhibition of ancient Greek coins at the Smithsonian and was greatly impressed by their artistic beauty and symbolic power. In comparison, he felt American coins were altogether bland and unworthy of our nation. He envisioned an entire new generation of coins that would represent the greatness of an America awakening to its emerging power and importance in the world, and he knew just the man who could pull it off, the great sculptor of his inauguration medal, Augustus Saint-Gaudens.
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.
