Why order this Ultra High Relief 2020 Barber Double Eagle 5 oz Silver Reverse Proof Medal?
When President Theodore Roosevelt decided that he wanted a new design for the Double Eagle in the early 20th century, he overlooked United States Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber in favor of his friend Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The Saint-Gaudens design became famous, but Barber also created his own designs for the coin. Just one so-called 1906 Pattern Double Eagle was struck with this design, which is part of the National Numismatic Collection (NNC) at the Smithsonian. Now for the first time, medals bearing these designs are available!
Historic Liberty Designs by Charles Barber
The obverse and reverse designs were both created by Charles Barber. Obverse: On the obverse, Liberty faces left wearing a laurel wreath and a Phrygian cap. Thirteen stars represent the states along the rim. The original date, "1906," is inscribed below her bust.
Reverse: Liberty holds a sword and a pole on which sits a liberty cap as she guards an eagle on the reverse. Inscriptions on this face include the name of the country for which the designs were created, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," the name of the coin for which they were created, "DOUBLE EAGLE," and the re-strike date, "2020." Also included on this face is the Smithsonian's logo.
Perfect PF70 UC
This medal earned Numismatic Guaranty Corporation's (NGC's) highest grade, Proof 70. To receive that grade, a coin must appear perfect under 5x magnification. NGC also certified this coin Ultra Cameo, which means that it exhibits particularly sharp contrasts between heavily frosted devices and deeply mirrored fields.
