The 1893 release of the $20 Liberty Double Eagle at the United States Mint featured production at the Philadelphia Mint, the San Francisco Mint, and notably, the final year for any coin series at the Carson City Mint. The San Francisco Mint issued the greatest volume of 1893 Liberty Double Eagles. Its mintage of 996,175 coins in 1893 was nearly triple that of the Philadelphia Mint and was far greater than the 18,402 coins issued by the Carson City Mint.
Liberty features on the obverse of the 1893 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coin in left-profile relief. This design from James B. Longacre includes a portrait of Liberty with a coronet crown and a ring of 13 stars around the bust. There is also an 1893 date mark on this side.
The heraldic eagle of the United States features in an ornate design on the reverse of 1893-S $20 Liberty Double Eagle Coins. This image of the bald eagle includes a large US national shield, the arrows of war in one set of talons, and the olive branch of peace in the other. A ring of 13 stars is featured above the head of the eagle, along with the motto In God We Trust which was added to the coins in 1866.
