Exquisite Liberty Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
The coin takes its name from Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who designed both of its faces. On the obverse, Liberty stands facing the holder with one foot elevated upon a rock. A strong wind blows her hair and garment as she holds her torch, a symbol of freedom, in one hand and an olive branch, a symbol of peace in the other. In the lower left, the Capitol Dome is rendered in miniature, and the rays of the morning sun spread out in the background. Forty-eight stars represent the states in 1925 along the rim. "LIBERTY" is inscribed at the top, while the date, "1925," is included in the lower right.
On the reverse, an eagle soars high in the sky against a backdrop of the sun's rays. The name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the face value of the coin, "TWENTY DOLLARS," arch over it. A small portion of the sun is at the bottom, and the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed just above it.
