Travel back in time and delve into the captivating history of the $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin, where the Philadelphia Mint played a pivotal role in the production of these exquisite coins from 1850 to 1907. Now, you have the opportunity to own a certified 1896 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin, available at Provident Metals.
The iconic Liberty Head design, conceived by James B. Longacre during his tenure as the 4th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint in 1849, graces the obverse of the Pre-33 $20 Gold Double Eagles minted between 1850 and 1907. Longacre drew inspiration from his predecessor for this magnificent design.
The obverse of the 1896 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins features a left-profile bust of Liberty, her hair gracefully flowing into a bun with a coronet crown atop her head. The field is encircled by 13 stars, and the date mark is displayed at the bottom. Inscriptions include LIBERTY on the coronet and 1896.
On the reverse of the 1896 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin, you’ll find the majestic Great Seal of the United States. This intricate design showcases an eagle with its wings outstretched, proudly supporting the US national shield and holding the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace in its talons. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, IN GOD WE TRUST, E PLURIBUS UNUM, and TWENTY DOLLARS.
Interestingly, the Liberty Head design made its debut nearly seven decades earlier, in 1838, when Christian Gobrecht, the 3rd Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, created a similar design for the Eagle, Half Eagle, and Quarter Eagle denominations of this splendid gold series. The enduring Liberty Head design adorned these coins for almost 70 years, making it one of the most enduring coin designs in American history.
These 1896 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins are available in Mint State 63 condition, displaying a slightly impaired mint luster with some small contact marks and a few more noticeable marks scattered across the field. Rest assured, these marks are visible without magnification but do not detract from the overall beauty of the coin.
