Following the discovery of Gold in northern California, the California Gold Rush of 1849 sent a steady flow of Gold to the U.S. Mint. The Gold Double Eagle coin was created as a $20 coin that was worth “double” the existing $10 Eagle coin. The $20 Liberty Gold coin was minted from 1850 to 1907, when the Double Eagle Gold coin was redesigned at the behest of President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1866, the U.S. Mint added the motto “In God We Trust” to the Gold Double Eagle coin, an important subtype for collectors of the Liberty Gold Double Eagle.
