Designed in 1907 by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the $20 Gold Double Eagle has gone down in American coining history as a design that the vast majority of numismatists consider the most beautiful Liberty effigy from the US Mint. The image graced the $20 Gold Double Eagle through 1933 and was revived by the US Mint in 1986 for modern bullion coins.
In 1924, the $20 Gold Double Eagle experienced one of its highest mintages across the board as the Roaring 20s saw the American economy rebound after World War I and international trade increased. In total, some 10,300,500 coins were issued in 1924. These Philadelphia Mint specimens had the highest mintage, followed by the Denver Mint (3.049 million) and the San Francisco Mint (2.927 million).
Lady Liberty graces the obverse of the 1924 $20 Gold Double Eagle Coin. This iconic design captures Liberty’s full-length figure in front-facing relief as she strides toward the viewer with sun rays on the distant horizon, the U.S. Capitol Building at her feet, and a ring of stars around the field.
In the reverse design of 1924 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagles, the mint features the image of a bald eagle in flight. In this graceful design, the eagle effortlessly soars through the design field as the sun rises along the bottom edge of the design element.
These 1924 $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle Coins are available in Mint State 65 condition. MS65 coins showcase an attractive, high-quality luster with only a few, small contact marks scattered throughout the field or two larger marks instead. One or two small patches of hairlines are also possible.
