Why order this $20 Gold 1927 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle?
Over a century after it was first issued, few dispute that the iconic Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is the most stunning coin in the history of American numismatics. So stunning was it that its obverse design was chosen for the American Gold Eagle when the United States began issuing gold bullion coins for the first time in decades in 1986. Now, you have the chance to own a piece from the iconic series with this 1927 edition.
Patriotic Saint-Gaudens Design
Obverse: Long the personification of the United States on coinage, Liberty stands at the center of the obverse. Striking a confident pose, she holds her torch, a symbol of freedom, in one hand and an olive branch, a symbol of peace, in her other hand. She appears larger than life thanks to the miniature rendering of the Capitol Dome and the rays of the morning sun, which spread out behind her. The image is named for Augustus Saint-Gaudens, who designed both faces of this coin.
Reverse: The national bird, a bald eagle, soars with its wings spread against a backdrop of the rays of the sun on the reverse. "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "TWENTY DOLLARS" are inscribed at the top of this face. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is included at the bottom. Augustus Saint-Gaudens was an immigrant from Ireland who is most famous for designing this coin, which is named for him. He also created several sculptures that remain on display in cities throughout the United States, as well as works that appear in Europe.
This coin earned a Mint State 64 grade from the experts at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). That grade indicates that the coin has at least an average strike and shows no traces of wear.
