Description:

The Fascinating History of the 1933 $20 Gold Double Eagle. The significance of this highly prized coin is reflected by its impressive, unparalleled history. No 1933 $20 Gold Saint Gaudens coins were ever allowed into circulation, at least not officially. A handful of these beautiful coins exist today, but the United States Mint has decided that ownership is illegal because all original coins with this mintage were removed illegally from the Mint. In the very few instances when these coins have been brought to the open market for sale, they have been seized, some would say illegally, by the U.S. government. The only "legitimate" examples are owned or held by the United States government. However, in 2001, the U.S. government reached an agreement with the owners of the "Farouk-Fenton" specimen of the 1933 Double Eagle which allows the coin to be sold, thus making it the only example outside of government hands that is legally owned. This coin was designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, and in general, the Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles are considered to be some of the greatest collectors pieces of all the United States gold coinage. The $20 gold piece is the largest denomination of all regular United States Mint issues. It was authorized by the US Coin Act of March 3, 1849, and was minted in Philadelphia, Denver, and San Francisco from 1907 to 1933. At a recent Auction, the Farouk-Fenton 1993 $20 Gold Saint Gaudens coin sold for $7,200,000, the highest price ever paid at auction for a United States minted coin. The Saint Gaudens coin shows a stunning and proud Miss Liberty on the obverse, and a beautiful eagle in flight above the setting sun on the reverse. This is one of the most amazing coins ever minted in the United States.
