BGASC offers these Pre-33 $20 Liberty Gold Double Eagle Coins in Extremely Fine condition, roughly equating to a grade of 40-45 on the Sheldon scale. In this state, the coins exhibit minimal wear on their highest points, preserving traces of their original mint luster.


Adorning the obverse of Pre-33 Liberty Gold Double Eagles is the profile of Lady Liberty, an enduring symbol of freedom. Conceived by James B. Longacre in 1849, this rendition presents Liberty wearing a coronet crown surrounded by a constellation of 13 stars.


Flipping the coin reveals the reverse of the Pre-33 $20 Gold Double Eagle, proudly showcasing the Magnificent Seal of the United States. A remarkable representation of the heraldic eagle commands attention, portraying the bald eagle from the front. Grasping the national shield on its chest, the eagle clutches symbols of war and peace an olive branch and war arrows. Type 2 coins also feature the national motto “IN GOD WE TRUST.”


The narrative of Pre-33 Liberty Gold Double Eagles unfolds in 1850, a direct outcome of the California Gold Rush. These coins boasted an obverse design by James B. Longacre, portraying Liberty, while the reverse showcased the revered Great Seal of the United States. Struck between 1850 and 1907, these coins are a tangible link to the past.

The design of the coin evolved over time, particularly on the reverse side. Initially missing the national motto “IN GOD WE TRUST” and featuring distinct lettering for the denomination, the Type 2 release in 1866 addressed the former of these aspects.
