The US Eagle series was one of the first coin programs launched by the United States Mint after its creation in 1792. This series included a $10 Eagle, $5 Half Eagle, and $2.50 Quarter Eagle. The California Gold Rush supplied the Treasury with enough gold to introduce the $20 Double Eagle.


The obverse of these 1873 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins features a bust of Lady Liberty. This design by Longacre was inspired by Christian Gobrechts portrait of Liberty, depicting her in left-profile with a coronet crown. The inscriptions read LIBERTY and 1873.


The reverse of the 1873 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Coins shows the Great Seal of the United States. This design includes a front-facing bald eagle holding the US national shield, olive branch of peace, and arrows of war. Inscriptions here read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, and TWENTY D.


In 1873, more than 2.7 million coins were issued by the US Mint in the Double Eagle denomination. The Philadelphia Mint issued more than 1.7 million coins, while the San Francisco Mint issued 1.04 million coins and the Carson City Mint struck just 22,410 coins.


These 1873 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins are in AU58 condition. This grade means the coins are almost BU in quality, with minimal friction marks on the highest points and nearly full mint luster. As an Open 3 coin, these pieces have more defined separation in the tips of the number 3 in the 1873 date.
