Regarded as one of the United States Mint’s most beloved coins, the Gold Double Eagle holds a special place in numismatic history. Although Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ 1907 redesign often receives the spotlight for its immense popularity, the classic Liberty Gold Double Eagle boasts the distinction of being the design that endured the longest, solidifying its iconic status. Today, you have the opportunity to get 1904 Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins in certified condition online from Provident Metals.
The $20 Gold Double Eagle was composed of 90% gold and 10% copper alloy, giving it a total weight of 33.436 grams, or 1.075 ounces. Each coin contained 0.9675 ounces of pure gold. With its substantial gold content, the Double Eagle had a face value of $20, making it the highest-denomination gold coin ever circulated in the United States.
With the 1904 Pre-33 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coin, the obverse beautifully presents Lady Liberty in left-profile relief. This timeless depiction of Liberty’s bust originated in 1849 and was introduced on circulation coins in 1850. Inscriptions include LIBERTY and 1904.
The reverse design of the 1904 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Coin portrays a grand rendition of the heraldic eagle. This powerful visual showcases a majestic bald eagle facing forward, its mighty wings spread wide, clutching both the arrows symbolizing war and the olive branch representing peace in its commanding talons. Notably, the US national shield proudly adorns the eagle’s chest, completing the impactful design. Inscriptions read UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, TWENTY DOLLARS, and IN GOD WE TRUST.
James Barton Longacre (1794-1869) was an American engraver and artist who made significant contributions to numismatics during his tenure as Chief Engraver of the United States Mint (1844-1869).
