Why add the 1903 Liberty Head $20 Gold Double Eagle NGC MS62 to your collection?

Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) graded this 1903 Liberty Head $20 Gold Double Eagle at the Mint State 62 (MS62) grade. The U.S. Mint in Philadelphia struck 287,270 of these coins, many of which were melted in the 1933 Gold Recall. The series ran from 1850 until 1907 and was struck on 90% fine gold rounds, each containing .9675 oz. of gold bullion. There were three distinct types of "Double Eagles": the first type with "no motto," the second which added the "In God We Trust" motto and the third which spells out the denomination "Twenty Dollars."

Iconic Double Eagle Design

The obverse features the portrait of a crowned Liberty with her hair gathered at the back of her head. Thirteen stars appear along the rim of the coin. The reverse features a heraldic bald eagle displayed, which means with chest exposed and wings and legs spread. The eagle holds arrows and an olive branch and appears beneath the motto "In God We Trust." This is a "type 3" reverse. The series was designed by James B. Longacre, Fourth Chief engraver of the U.S. Mint.

Attractive MS62 uncirculated example

MS62 coins have average strikes, attractive design details, a few distractions or bag marks based on how they were stored over the years, appealing mint luster.
