The story of Pre-33 Liberty Double Eagles traces back to 1850, an era shaped by the California Gold Rush. These coins bear an obverse design crafted by James B. Longacre, portraying Liberty, while the reverse presents the revered Great Seal of the United States. Struck between 1850 and 1907, these coins stand as a testament to bygone times.


Gracing the obverse of Pre-33 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins is the profile of Lady Liberty, an enduring emblem of freedom. Conceived by James B. Longacre in 1849, this rendition depicts Liberty adorned with a coronet crown encircled by a constellation of 13 stars. Inscriptions read LIBERTY and the date.


Turning the coin unveils the reverse of the Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle, which proudly presents the Magnificent Seal of the United States. A remarkable portrayal of the heraldic eagle commands attention, depicting the bald eagle from the front. Clasping the national shield on its chest, the eagle clutches symbols of war and peace an olive branch and war arrows. Type 2 coins also feature the national motto “IN GOD WE TRUST.” Other inscriptions include UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TWENTY D.


The design of the coin evolved over time, with significant changes on the reverse side. Initially lacking the national motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” and featuring distinct lettering for the denomination, the Type 2 release in 1866 addressed the former of these elements.


Provident Metals extends these Pre-33 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Gold Coins in Extremely Fine condition, corresponding to a grade of approximately 40-45 on the Sheldon scale. In this state, the coins retain slight wear on their highest points, preserving vestiges of their original mint luster.
