These 1857-S Pre-33 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Gold Coins are available in Mint State 64 condition. Coins with this grade showcase an average mint luster for the date, with several small contact marks in groups, and one or two moderate marks. You might also observe one or two small patches of hairlines, adding to the historical charm of these coins.


The obverse design of the 1857-S Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coin portrays a left-profile bust of Lady Liberty adorned with a graceful coronet crown. This timeless image, created in 1849 by James B. Longacre, draws inspiration from Christian Gobrecht’s design for other US Eagle denominations, adding a touch of historical significance to these coins.


On the reverse of the 1857-S Pre-33 $20 Gold Double Eagles, you’ll find the Great Seal of the United States. This particular coin is recognized as a Spiked Shield, displaying a more pronounced and defined edge to the lower-left field of the US national shield in the reverse design, making it a distinctive and cherished collectible.


The loss of the SS Central America’s gold had a significant impact on the American economy at the time. It caused a financial panic and contributed to the nationwide economic depression known as the Panic of 1857.
