A Vision, Realized
At the time of the great coinage redesign, the artist-preferred design for the $20 Gold "Double Eagle" by Augustus Saint-Gaudens was the familiar "Indian Head" design featuring Liberty wearing a Native American Head Dress. A single pattern coin was struck by the Mint using the preferred design and today has not been seen publicly since the 1980s. This issue features a faithful re-sculpting of the original design by John Mercanti, former Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. It features the high relief image of Liberty on the obverse and the classic Saint-Gaudens Flying Eagle reverse.
Gem Proof Excellence
Gem Proofs are high-quality examples that would grade at the Proof 65 grade of higher. This example features a National Park Foundation branded black velvet baggie and a Certificate of Authenticity.
