Why purchase this Ultra High Relief 1933-2021 1 oz Gold Reverse Proof Medal NPF Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle?
The US Mint struck 445,000 1933 Double Eagles, but the US government made private gold ownership illegal before the coin was released. The coins were supposed to be melted, but a few made it out of the mint. One of those that escaped made it into the collection of King Farouk of Egypt and was eventually auctioned for $7,590,000. This medal, which is licensed by the National Parks Foundation, pays homage to the historic 1933 Double Eagle in ultra high relief.
Awe Inspiring Saint-Gaudens Design by Augustus Saint-Gaudens
The designs on this medal were originally created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens for the Double Eagle and were recreated for this medal by John Mercanti. Obverse: Liberty stands facing the holder against a backdrop of the rays of the morning sun on the obverse. She holds her torch, a symbol of freedom, in one hand and an olive branch, which represents peace, in the other. Her name, "LIBERTY," is inscribed at the top, and the original coin's date, "1933," is in the lower right.
Reverse: The rays of the sun spread out behind an eagle as the bird soars high in the sky on the reverse. Arching over the bird are the inscriptions "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "DOUBLE EAGLE," while the national motto, "IN GOD WE TRUST," is just above the sun at the bottom. Along the rim on the left are inscriptions that together read, "SAINT-GAUDENS NHP 2021."
