The Longacre $20 Gold Liberty
Designed by James B. Longacre, the beloved creator of the famous Indian Head Cent, this $20 Liberty comes struck in nearly a full ounce of highly pure 90% fine gold and is an absolute “must-have” for any collection of United States coins.
This Gold Double Eagle was a long-running series, with coins struck at every operational mint — Philadelphia, San Francisco, New Orleans, Carson City and even Denver — and dates ranging from 1850 to 1907. Available here is a Type III coin dated between 1877 and 1907 (date varies). The Type III coins feature a bigger and bolder “IN GOD WE TRUST” motto as well as Lady Liberty’s neck being shortened and with a sharper angle to allow greater space to display the coin’s date.

In fact, each coin available here will come certified and graded by either the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) or the Professional Coin Grading Service (PCGS) as being in beautiful Choice Uncirculated Mint State-64 (MS64) condition with nice luster and pleasing eye appeal. Grading service varies.
