The $20 Double Eagle Gold Coins were only ever issued with two design elements. While five designs were used in total across the Eagle, Half Eagle, and Quarter Eagle denominations, the introduction of the Double Eagle in 1849 came after the original three designs in the collection were canceled. Right now, you can get Pre-33 $20 Liberty and Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle 2-Coin Gold Sets online from Provident Metals.

Lady Liberty features in one of two portraits on the obverse of Pre-33 $20 Liberty and Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle Gold Coins in this two-coin set. The image of Liberty on the Liberty Head is a left-profile relief depiction from James B. Longacre that includes a coronet crown. The depiction of Liberty on the Saint-Gaudens coin shows her figure in front-facing relief with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. Inscriptions on the Liberty coin include LIBERTY on the coronet and a date mark with 13 stars around the portrait. The Saint-Gaudens coin includes an inscription of LIBERTY with a date mark and a ring of 46 or 48 stars. Coins dated 1907 to 1911 have 46 stars, while coins dated 1912-1933 have 48 stars.
American bald eagles are found on the reverse side of coins in the Pre-33 $20 Liberty and Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle 2-Coin Gold Set. A modified Great Seal of the United States reminiscent of the heraldic eagle is found on the reverse of Liberty Head coins. This design includes inscriptions of UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. The national motto features on coins dated 1866-1907, while the face value is TWENTY D. on coins dated 1849-1866 and TWENTY DOLLARS on coins dated 1877-1907. The Saint-Gaudens coins feature a bald eagle soaring over the sun as it rises. There is no national motto on 1907 coins, with IN GOD WE TRUST added in 1908.
The two coins available to you in this set represent the entire history of Double Eagle coining. From the California Gold Rush, the Civil War, and Reconstruction to the Gilded Age, World War I, and the Roaring 20s.
