The $20 Gold Liberty Double Eagle was created after vast amounts of gold came pouring out of the hills in the California Gold Rush. Congress quickly created two new coin denominations from the U.S. Mint; the Gold Dollar and $20 Double Eagle, named because it was exactly double of a $10 Eagle, but more of a Bankers Coin intended for larger transactions. Designed by James B. Longacre, the fourth Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, the obverse bears the bust of Liberty facing left wearing a coronet inscribed with her name “Liberty,” amid a circle of 13 stars. The reverse features a facing American eagle with a large Union shield across its breast, clutching an olive branch and arrows in its claws, with a glory of rays and an elliptical constellation of 13 stars above. There are three types of Double Eagles; Type 1 (1849-1866), Without a motto on the reverse. Type 2 (1866-1876), With motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” added in the oval of stars above the eagle. And Type 3 (1877-1907), “TWENTY D” was replaced by “TWENTY DOLLARS.” Double Eagle Liberty Gold Coins were minted during an era that defined our nation and are history in your hands.
