Why add the Mint State 64 1924 $20 Gold Saint-Gaudens to your collection?
This 1924 $20 Gold Saint-Gaudens example escaped the melting pot in 1933.

This issue is struck on a 90% pure gold planchet containing .9675 oz. AGW.
Magnificent Saint-Gaudens coin design
President Theodore Roosevelt wanted to change the long-running coinage designs at the turn of the century. He approached the famous Augustus Saint-Gaudens, an artist, to work on this redesign project. Sadly, Saint-Gaudens only finished two of these proposed redesigns before he died of cancer. What he left us was a numismatic legend with his $20 gold "Double Eagle" design. The design on the obverse features the standing figure of Lady Liberty, holding the Torch of Enlightenment high overhead in her right hand. In her left hand she firmly grasps the olive branch of Peace. The reverse of the coin features a spectacular and powerful flying bald eagle. The eagle is backlit by the rays of the rising sun.
Mint State 64 classic for your collection
Mint State 64 coins are fully uncirculated examples with moderate bag marks, hairline or distractions. The distractions are apparent but not often in the focal areas of the design. These coins are well-struck and have above average eye appeal.
