Why the “double eagle”?
The word “double” simply means that the coin is worth $20. The name of the $20 Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coin comes from its designer – a famed US Mint sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens. The first ever double eagle was introduced in 1850 and it was the $20 Liberty Gold coin. The design was revamped in the early 1900’s by President Theodore Roosevelt, who did not find earlier US coinage especially pleasing to the eye.
The US Mint produced the Saint Gaudens Gold Double Eagle coins from 1907 to 1916. Bullion prices rose sharply in 1916 because of World War I. Mintage didn’t resume for very long in 1920 – only until 1933 when the currency laws of the Great Depression removed gold coins from circulation.

Due to the coin’s history it’s collectible and valuable with the highest value being held by the rare coins produced between 1929 and 1933. Tese coins are sought after because of their historical significance, gold content, and beautiful design.
