Why add this gold commemorative to your collection?

In 1905, President Theodore Roosevelt commissioned Saint Gaudens to redesign America's coins. Saint Gaudens accepted the challenge, and began working on the re-designs from his home in New Hampshire, which is now a historical site for visitors. While many of Saint Gaudens' designs are well-known, one design has been waiting in secret, until now.

Design & composition of the Gold Winged Liberty

This Winged Liberty design was originally intended for the Double Eagle. The design was simplified and the headdress was removed due to lack of minting technology and physical space of the coin. Now, the Royal Mint has created these commemorative proofs to display the Saint Gaudens design that was almost lost forever, the Winged Liberty. While sketches and plasters of the design were found in Saint Gaudens' home, John Mercanti helped to complete the plasters and finish the design.

Each gold commemorative is comprised of 1 Troy oz. .9999 fine gold. These coins have been certified by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) to be in GEM Proof condition and are sealed with a label that has been hand-signed by John Mercanti, himself.
