Why add this 1927 $20 Gold Double Eagle to your collection?
At the beginning of the 20th century, American Gold coinage was undistinguished with designs that had remained mostly unchanged for over fifty years. At the request of President Theodore Roosevelt, sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens designed the Double Eagle coin with imagery symbolizing liberty and freedom, representing the identity of the United States. This Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle coin was struck in 1927 at the Philadelphia Mint from .9675 Troy oz. of .900 fine gold, with a final reported mintage of 2,946,750.
Incredibly Detailed Patriotic Imagery
The obverse portrays Lady Liberty walking forward while carrying an olive branch in her left hand and flaming torch in her right, with the rays of a rising sun and the U.S. Capitol building behind her. She is encircled by forty-eight stars, signifying the number of states at the time, as well as the inscriptions "LIBERTY" and "1927."
The reverse depicts a majestic eagle in graceful flight over a radiant sunrise. Inscriptions include "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," "TWENTY DOLLARS" and "IN GOD WE TRUST."
