Why purchase this 1904 $20 Gold Liberty Head Double Eagle Type III coin?
The U.S. Mint introduced the Liberty Head $20 Gold Double Eagle series in 1850, following the discovery of vast amounts of gold in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. During the period of the coin's production, which concluded in 1907, the reverse design was significantly modified twice. The first alteration, the Type II design, occurred in 1866, when the motto "IN GOD WE TRUST" was added in the aftermath of the American Civil War. The modification that resulted in the Type III design took place in 1877, when the representation of the coin's denomination was changed from the abbreviated "TWENTY D." to the fully spelled out "TWENTY DOLLARS."
Gorgeous Personification of Liberty
Obverse: The obverse features a rendition of Lady Liberty wearing a "LIBERTY" inscribed, beaded crown. Thirteen stars encircle the portrait, with "1904" inscribed below.
Reverse: A heraldic eagle is centered on the reverse, with thirteen stars above. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "IN GOD WE TRUST," "TWENTY DOLLARS" and "E PLURIBUS UNUM."
