Why add the 1928 Saint-Gaudens $20 Gold Double Eagle PCGS MS64 Old Green Holder to your collection?

This 1928 Saint-Gaudens $20 Gold Double Eagle is a fantastic choice to add to your collection. It was graded Mint State 64 (MS64) by Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) and encapsulated in an early "Old Green Holder." The US Mint first struck this series in 1907 and finished in 1933. Each coin is struck on .900 pure gold planchets containing .9675 oz. of gold.

Iconic and Historic Design

The designer of this coin, Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the leading American Sculptor of his day. The obverse features Lady Liberty striding forward with confidence, an olive branch held in hand and the Torch of Enlightenment held overhead. Behind her is the rising sun, and off to the side is the U.S. Capitol building. The reverse features the most majestic flying bald eagle ever shown on a circulating U.S. coin. Again, behind the eagle is the dawning sun, over which is the phrase "In God We Trust." Interestingly, use of the phrase was opposed by devout people of the day because money could be used for "wicked" purposes, like gambling.

Excellent example in high collector Grade

MS64 graded coins have a better strike and feature lustrous, original surfaces and nice eye appeal. This is a spectacular example given the early PCGS "Green Holder" encapsulation.
