The $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle was first minted in 1849 and was then released for regular production from 1850 to 1907. The $20 Liberty was issued in three versions. The first version did not include the “In God We Trust” motto, whereas the second was updated to include this motto. The third version included an unabbreviated denomination.
This coin was the first $20 denomination produced by the U.S. Mint, and held a great deal of purchasing power during that period. The $20 Liberty received the name Double Eagle, because it was twice the legal tender value of the $10 Liberty.
The U.S. Mint only produced two proof coins of the $20 Liberty. One was given to the Smithsonian Institution in Washington, D.C., where it still remains on display, and the other to Treasury Secretary William M. Meredith. It was eventually sold with his estate, and its current location is unknown.
Obverse: Left-facing Liberty with the word “Liberty” written on her hair band. Lady Liberty is surrounded by 13 stars.
Reverse: Heraldic eagle with a shield on its breast clutching an olive branch and bundles of oranges. The words “United States of America” surround the eagle and denomination with 13 stars above, representing the 13 original colonies.
Some of the most popular grades among investors are MS62, MS63, MS64, MS65, and MS66, among others.
