Why order this 3-Piece Ultra High Relief 2020 Silver/Gold Barber Double Eagle Reverse Proof Set?
Under the leadership of President Theodore Roosevelt, the United States underwent a numismatic renaissance in the early 20th century. The design for the Double Eagle was a focus, and President Roosevelt chose Augustus Saint-Gaudens to design it rather than the current U.S. Mint Chief Engraver Charles Barber. While the Saint-Gaudens coin became famous, just one gold "1906 Pattern Double Eagle" was struck with Barber's designs. Thanks to the medals in this set, you now have the chance to own pieces that bear Barber's designs.
Exquisite Liberty Designs by Charles Barber
Obverse: Charles Barber's obverse design features a left-facing bust of Liberty. She wears a Phrygian cap and a laurel wreath on her head. She is flanked by thirteen stars, which represent the original states, and the original date, "1906," is inscribed at the bottom of this face.
Reverse: Barber's reverse design shows Liberty guarding an eagle. She holds a sword in one hand and a pole on which sits a Liberty cap in the other. Inscriptions on this face include the name of the country for which the Double Eagle was issued, "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA,' the name of the coin for which these designs were created, "DOUBLE EAGLE," and the strike date, "2020." The logo of the Smithsonian also appears on this face.
Flawless Proof 70 Ultra Cameo)
Each piece in this set earned a Proof 70 grade from Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC). That grade means that a medal appears perfect as seen under 5x magnification. These pieces were also certified Ultra Cameo, which means that they have deeply mirrored fields that contrast sharply with heavily frosted devices.
