American Gold Saint Gaudens $20 "Double Eagle" (1907 - 1933)
Many consider the twenty-dollar gold piece designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens to be the most beautiful U.S. coin. The first coins issued were slightly more than 12,000 high-relief pieces struck for general circulation. The relief is much higher than for later issues, and the date 1907 is in Roman numerals (MCMVII). Flat-relief double eagles were issued later in 1907 with Arabic numerals, and continued through 1933. The Saint-Gaudens $20 Double Eagle is one of the most sought after gold coins on the market today. Its weight was 516 grains, .900 fine. Weight 33.436 grams; composition .900 gold,.100 copper (net weight: .96750 oz. pure gold); diameter 34 mm; edge: "E PLURIBUS UNUM" with words divided by stars.
