Each 1857-S $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin has earned a Mint State 65 grade, displaying alluring mint luster with only a few minor contact marks. Some coins may reveal delicate hairlines, adding to their authenticity and allure. As a Spiked Shield Coin, these 1857 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coins showcase a unique visual element on the reverse field. Look for raised die lines near the lower-left edge of the heraldic shield to identify the Spiked Shield variant.


The obverse side of the 1857-S Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin showcases a captivating left-profile depiction of Lady Liberty adorned with a coronet crown, encircled by 13 stars, and the date mark at the bottom. Inscriptions include LIBERTY on the coronet and 1857.


Turn the coin over to reveal the Great Seal of the United States on the reverse side. The majestic American bald eagle proudly supports the US national shield with outstretched wings, holding arrows of war in one talon and an olive branch of peace in the other. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, the S mint mark, and TWENTY D.


The wreck of the SS Central America was rediscovered in 1988 by a team led by Thomas G. Thompson, a renowned oceanographer. The ship was found approximately 200 miles off the coast of South Carolina, resting at a depth of around 7,200 feet (2,200 meters) below the surface.
