$20 Liberty gold double eagles are one of the world’s most recognized gold coins. A workhorse coin of commerce, it was one of the building blocks of the growing U.S. economy and financial markets in the 19th and early 20th centuries.
Also known as Coronet Double Eagles because of the coronet, or crown, adorning the head of Liberty on the obverse, $20 Liberty gold coins were used in every aspect of American economic life. Their large gold content (almost a full ounce) made them especially useful in banking transactions and international trade. The classic portrait of Miss Liberty on the coin’s obverse and the bold heraldic Eagle on its reverse stand as inspiring symbols of America’s emergence as a mature world power during this wild and exciting period in our nation’s history.
