The 2 oz Silver $20 Saint Gaudens round pays tribute to one of the most rare and beautiful coins ever produced in America. In 1904, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned the famous sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens to overhaul the $20 Double Eagle gold coin in the style of ultra high-relief ancient Greek coins. However, these ultra high-relief coins proved to be virtually impossible to strike in large quantities, and the project was scrapped after a scant 20-30 of them were made. Engravers attempted to scale back the coin’s depth further to a “High Relief” version, but these also proved too difficult to strike efficiently. Finally, in 1907, the U.S. Mint decided to make the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle in standard relief, which were produced in mass quantities until 1933.
Today, the Intaglio Mint 2 oz Silver Saint Gaudens Round celebrates the high relief $20 Saint which the US Mint attempted to produce. This Silver Saint Gaudens round is intricately sculpted in high relief from 2 oz .999 pure silver. Each round is a substantial 6 mm thick with a beautiful reeded edge. Add one of these exquisite and historic rounds to your collection today!
The obverse features the full-length image of Lady Liberty, akin to the design created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907. She is featured striding boldly out from the rising sun and the nation’s Capitol with her robe and hair billowing behind her. She holds a torch high in her right hand to provide a guiding light for the nation, while her left hand grasps the olive branch of peace. “LIBERTY” is inscribed within a ring of 50 stars.
The reverse is reminiscent of the original $20 Saint Gaudens Double Eagle coin. A left-facing eagle is depicted in flight in front of a rising sun’s rays. “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA”, “TWO TROY OUNCES”, and the round’s weight and purity are inscribed around the image.
