The $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle was designed John B. Longacre. The front of the coin features his Crowned Liberty portrait, earning it the alternative titles of “Liberty Head Double Eagle” and “Coronet Double Eagle.” The portrait depicts Lady Liberty, wearing an inscribed tiara. She is encircled by a series of stars in honor of the original 13 colonies. Longacre drew his inspiration for his artwork from the royal effigies featured on ancient Greco-Roman currency.
The reverse side of the coin proudly displays the Great Seal of the US. This emblem depicts a spread winged eagle upholding a shield, an olive branch and a bundle of arrows. Due to revisions over the years, three versions of this design exist: the original; the type II version that displays the phrase, “In God We Trust;” and the type III version with the word, “Dollar,” fully spelled out. Please note that since coin distribution varies according to availability at the time of order placement, JM Bullion cannot disclose the specific version in advance.
