Why Order This GEM 2011 1 oz. Smithsonian Collection 1849 Pattern Double Eagle Gold Proof?

The Double Eagle is among the most well-known classic U.S. coins. Many are familiar with the Double Eagle designs created by Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The gold proof shown here features a design that was used for the very first Double Eagle ever struck by the U.S. Mint in 1849. This proof weighs 1 troy oz. and is made of .999 fine gold, it was struck by a private Mint in 2011. Mintage of these proofs was unbelievably limited. Part of this coin's appeal is the fact that only 1 original 1849 Double Eagle is known to exist today.

Longacre's Classic Designs

The designs featured on this coin are the work of James B. Longacre. The obverse shows his finely detailed portrait of Liberty. There are plenty of details to observe here. The lower portion of the design is inscribed with the date, "1849."

The reverse displays Longacre's heraldic bald eagle design. The central portion shows the eagle spreading its wings wide as it holds arrows and an olive branch with its talons. This side is inscribed with "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA" and "DOUBLE EAGLE."


This coin was certified by the experts at the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation. It was assigned the grade of GEM Proof, which means this specimen looks like it just left the Mint.
