Saint-Gaudens Lady Liberty depiction features Liberty walking forward out of the setting sun. The torch held aloft in her right hand provides a guiding light for the nation, while the oak and olive branches in her left hand represent civic success and a desire for peace.
On the obverse side of the $20 Saint-Gaudens Gold Double Eagle is the image of Lady Liberty. Her depiction is surrounded by stars representing each of the states in the US. When the coin was first released in 1907, there were just 46 stars around her. In 1912, two more stars were added to represent the addition of New Mexico and Arizona to the Union.
The reverse side features a bald eagle in flight over the rising sun. Again, there are differences in the design depending upon the year of minting. Coins struck in 1907 and 1908 feature no motto along the rim of the sun, while all subsequent coins feature In God We Trust.
