Taken directly from sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens’ monument to General William T. Sheman in Central Park, the obverse depicts Lady Liberty striding toward the viewer from out of a rising sun. Her hair flows and she carries a torch and an olive branch. Inscriptions include “LIBERTY” and the year of issue.
The reverse captures an American Bald Eagle in flight above the rays of a rising sun. Inscriptions include “UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” and “TWENTY DOLLARS.”
The idea for the Gold Double Eagle was imagined in 1905 when Theodore Roosevelt attended an exhibition of ancient Greek coins at the Smithsonian. He was greatly impressed by their artistic beauty and symbolic power, and he envisioned a new, improved generation of American coins that better represented the greatness of our country.
Augustus Saint-Gaudens, the most prominent sculptor and artist in the country at the time, readily agreed to the job once he learned of Roosevelt’s desire to rework the nation’s coinage. His work led to this Double Eagle $20 gold piece, along with other treasured American coins.

" Provident has good prices on these coins and I was glad to be able to buy one this year. I'm not an expert at all, but my coin seemed pretty banged up. The design is intact, but there a lot of surface scratches. Given the fairly low premium, I'm still happy to have it, but don't see how it could be AU."

" My St. Gaudens coins arrived, a 1924 and a 1914 S. Both have a few bag marks and minuscule scratches, but they are undoubtedly AU in grade, practically BU. Regardless, I'm thrilled to get these pieces of American history. The fact that they are also a great way to secure my wealth is just icing on the cake! Provident once again impressed me with their quality of product and their speed of delivery. "

" I received a slabbed AU58 1927 Double Eagle. I am not really a numismatic guy just bought as a piece of history. I am extremely happy with this purchase."
