These 1878-S Pre-33 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagles have attained an AU58 grade from the NGC, signifying coins at the uppermost tier of the About Uncirculated range, displaying only minimal signs of friction on the highest relief points, along with medium to near-full mint luster.


The 1878-S $20 Liberty Double Eagle’s obverse design showcases a left-profile effigy of Liberty, adorned with a coronet crown and encircled by 13 stars.Crafted by James B. Longacre in 1849, the Liberty Gold Double Eagles carry forward Longacres obverse bust of Liberty, reminiscent of Christian Gobrechts 1838 bust featured on other denominations of the US Eagle during that era.


On the reverse, the 1878-S Pre-33 Liberty Gold Double Eagles feature the Great Seal of the United States, presenting a prominent US national shield, arrows of war, and olive branch of peace. A ring of 13 stars above the eagles head includes the inscription of the national motto.


In 1878, the Liberty Gold Double Eagles found their way into circulation as the United States Mint distributed them across three branch mints. The San Francisco Mint took the lead, producing a staggering 1.739 million coins. In comparison, the Philadelphia Mint contributed 543,625 coins, and the Carson City Mint issued a modest volume of just 13,180 coins.
