Why add this San Francisco struck 1900 $20 Gold Liberty Head Double Eagle to your collection?

The Liberty Head Double Eagle was the first American $20 denomination gold coin, issued by the United States Mint from 1850 until 1907. Production of the coin was authorized by Congressional legislation as a result of the mid-19th century California Gold Rush. Design of the coin is credited to James B. Longacre, who served as the Mint's fourth Chief Engraver, from 1844-1869. Measuring 34 mm in diameter, this Liberty Head Double Eagle was struck from 0.9675 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold by the San Francisco Mint in 1900, its final mintage reported to be 2,459,500.

Gorgeous Lady Liberty Design

The obverse features the left facing profile image of Lady Liberty, her tresses held in place by a beaded coronet inscribed "LIBERTY." The portrait is surrounded by thirteen six-pointed stars, with the date "1900" below.

A heraldic eagle behind a striped shield is illustrated on the reverse, grasping an olive branch and arrows, flanked by scrolls declaring "E PLURIBUS UNUM." Additional inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "TWENTY DOLLARS" and San Francisco's Mint mark "S."
