Why order this 1927 $20 Gold Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle?
This 1927 Saint-Gaudens is a fantastic option for collectors looking for an uncirculated example of one of the most beautiful coins ever struck.

The obverse design was revived in 1986 for the America Gold Eagle Series. This coin was struck from 33.44 g of .900 fine gold at the Philadelphia Mint and is part of a mintage of 2,946,750 pieces.
Featuring the Iconic Liberty Design of Augustus Saint-Gaudens
The coin's obverse features Liberty standing with her long hair and garment blowing in a strong breeze. She faces the holder, striking a confident pose with one foot set upon a rock. In her right hand, she holds high her torch, a symbol of freedom recognized throughout the world. In her left hand she holds an olive branch, a symbol of peace, off to her side. Behind her, the rays of the morning sun spread out, combining with the Capitol Dome, which is shown in the lower left, to make the figure appear larger than life. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed at the top, while the date, "1927," is in the lower right.All of this is encircled by stars along the rim, which represent the states.
An eagle soars high in the sky against a backdrop of the rays of the sun on the reverse. The national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is inscribed on the sun itself, which is at the bottom. Arching over this scene are two inscriptions, one that offers the name of the issuing country, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and the other the coin's face value, "TWENTY DOLLARS."
Beautifully Maintained MS63
This coin earned an uncirculated grade of Mint State 63 from the experts at Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS). Coins in MS63 condition lack any traces of wear and have about average strikes.
