These 1861 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coins are available in Mint State 61 condition. Coins with this grade may exhibit some signs of wear, such as diminished mint luster, clusters of minor and major contact marks, and visible hairlines.


The obverse of the 1861 $20 Liberty Double Eagle Coins showcases a left-profile bust of Lady Liberty wearing a coronet crown and adorned with flowing curls. The design is encircled by 13 stars, and the date mark 1861 is placed at the bottom.


On the reverse of the 1861 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coins, you’ll find the Great Seal of the United States. This remarkable rendition of the heraldic eagle features a frontal view of a majestic bald eagle supporting a detailed US national shield. Rays of sunlight extend from the tips of its outstretched wings, while the eagle firmly holds the arrows of war and the olive branch of peace.


The story of the $20 Gold Double Eagle Coin can be traced back to the famous California Gold Rush. When the US Mint introduced the Eagle denomination in 1795, it was initially available only in the form of the $10 Eagle, $5 Half Eagle, and $2.50 Quarter Eagle. Following the immense influx of gold to the Treasury during and after the California Gold Rush, the $20 Gold Double Eagle was born. The coin featured a design inspired by Christian Gobrecht’s Liberty Head design from 1838, adapted by James B. Longacre, the 4th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint.
