The Saint-Gaudens $20 Double Eagle is one of the most sought after gold coins on the market today. These gold pieces were produced by the U.S. Mint from 1907 to 1933. The coin is named after its designer, Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and is widely regarded as one of the most beautiful U.S. coins ever minted.

The Saint-Gaudens $20 gold coin was the result of President Theodore Roosevelt’s desire to beautify U.S. coinage. President Roosevelt felt that Saint-Gaudens was the man who could help him do so.

Saint-Gaudens eventually passed away before the designs were finalized to go into production. The coin’s high relief is said to have made the coin difficult to strike, and U.S. Mint chief engraver Charles Barber made some modifications to the design that allowed it to be struck with a single blow.
