Investment Grade Gold Coins

We believe the $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle is currently one of the best values in gold.

MS64 $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles have been known to trade as high as four times the price of gold, but right now they’re at less than twice the spot price of gold. Because the rare coin bull market hasn’t even begun to heat up (it typically launches after gold has reached a stable peak) the upside potential of this coin is great.

Low risk. High potential. Now is the time to diversify your bullion holdings with an affordable rare coin that offers two kinds of value: intrinsic value for its pure gold content, and collectible value as an iconic piece of U.S. history that is sought after and traded worldwide. The MS64 $20 Saint-Gaudens Double Eagle can be acquired right now with relatively little risk at prices not too far above bullion – and it could rise radically in value from current levels if it returns to its previous percentage over spot.

In 1905, while touring the Smithsonian Institution, President Theodore Roosevelt marveled at the ancient Greek coinage on display and asked himself why American coinage seemed so “bland.” Compared to Greek coinage, Roosevelt felt that our nation’s coins were “artistically of atrocious hideousness.” The beauty of the classic Greek coins inspired him to launch new designs for the whole range of U.S. coins.

By 1905, America had grown to become the most powerful nation on earth. Roosevelt wanted coinage that would reflect America’s preeminent status. The President contacted the artist who had created his 1905 inauguration medallion, Augustus Saint-Gaudens. For a fee of $5,000, Saint-Gaudens agreed to design a series of coins as graceful and classically beautiful as the ancient Greek coins Roosevelt admired. Unfortunately, Saint-Gaudens died of cancer before his task was completed, but his majestic Double Eagle $20 gold piece is considered to be the most beautiful coin of all time and, to this day, it is the most famous of all of Saint-Gaudens’ works of art.

“One of the most beautiful coins in the world.” On the obverse of the coin, Liberty is portrayed striding toward the viewer into the dawn of a new day. In her right hand is a torch held aloft, and in her left hand is an olive branch. The Capitol building can be seen in the background. At the top is the word LIBERTY and around the border are 46 stars representing the states of the Union in 1907. The setting for the obverse was taken from Saint-Gaudens’ much acclaimed Victory, a sculpture that is part of the Sherman Monument in New York City’s Central Park. The reverse of the coin depicts an American eagle in flight, over the sun’s rays, with the inscription UNITED STATES OF AMERICA TWENTY DOLLARS arching across the top.

Scarcity drives value, and most of these coins were melted down. When Theodore Roosevelt first viewed Saint-Gaudens’ Double Eagle design, he knew that the artist had created a coin that would be admired for ages. What he did not know, however, was that a quarter-century later, his cousin, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, would confiscate all privately owned gold and most of these beautiful works of art would be melted into lifeless bars.
