Any collector who owns a Saint-Gaudens $20 gold coin knows how much interest and attention that coin gets immediately when anyone sees their collection. These coins are big, 90% gold and widely considered the most beautiful U.S. coins! These coins were struck over a century ago at the San Francisco Mint, which was born of the great California gold rush. Just 567,500 $20 gold pieces were struck at San Francisco in 1915.
The $20 gold pieces of 1907-1933 were designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the foremost American sculptor of the early 20th century. They were part of a coin design renaissance inspired by President Theodore Roosevelt – who invited the nation's finest sculptors and medalists to re-design America's coins. The obverse features a stunning full-length image of Liberty striding confidantly forward – with radiant sun rays and a distant view of the U.S. Capitol behind her. The reverse depicts an eagle in flight, sun rays behind and the motto in god we trust below.
