Taken directly from sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ monument to General William T. Sheman in Central Park, the obverse depicts Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer from out of a rising sun. Her hair flows and she carries a torch and an olive branch. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY” and the year of issue.
The reverse captures an American Bald Eagle in flight above the rays of a rising sun. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “TWENTY DOLLARS.”
The idea for the Gold Double Eagle was imagined in 1905 when Theodore Roosevelt attended an exhibition of ancient Greek coins at the Smithsonian. He was greatly impressed by their artistic beauty and symbolic power, and he envisioned a new, improved generation of American coins that better represented the greatness of our country.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the most prominent sculptor and artist in the country at the time, readily agreed to the job once he learned of Roosevelt’s desire to rework the nation’s coinage. His work led to this Double Eagle $20 gold piece, along with other treasured American coins.
The coins in this category will have a randomized year of issue, depending on our current inventory. Each of them has been graded and certified as Mint State 62 by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC).
