About Saint-Gaudens Double Eagles

The beauty of American coinage reached its highest point when Augustus Saint-Gaudens stepped up to redesign the twenty dollar gold piece. At the request of President Theodore Roosevelt who pursued renewing the artistry of circulating coinage, this coin and its smaller denomination siblings each received a new design to better reflect the prospects of the United States in the twentieth century.

The Twenty Dollar gold piece, or Double Eagle as it is sometimes called, began to be minted to turn the vast quantities of gold emanating from California into coin form. Prior to the denominationís first issuance in 1850, demand was so high that private firms produced their own examples. When the United States Mint began production, the design used mimicked the Liberty Head of the tiny One Dollar gold piece and used a variation of the Great Seal on the reverse. This type remained in use for fifty-seven years.
