Do not confuse double gold eagle coin with American Gold Eagles which are a gold bullion coin manufactured since 1987.

Want to explore even more gold eagles? Head to Gold Eagles home page.

Double Eagle coin is a gold bullion coin that was minted by the United States Mint; the first of these gold coins was minted in 1849, producing two proofs at the time. Production kicked into gear in 1850 and continued until 1933.

This visually stunning coin has often been described as one of the most beautiful coins that the United States has ever minted. It has a face-value of $20 which is what earned it the moniker Double Eagle. At the time of early production, the highest denomination of coin in the United States was the Eagle - valued at $10.

Gold Double Eagle coin was produced using an alloy containing 90% gold and 10% copper. Like all gold coins its worth was determined by the cost of gold. However, the historical value of these alone combined with the year that they were minted can dramatically alter the true market value.

The gold Double Eagle went through several design changes, as well as a change in designer, that evolved from the head of Lady Liberty on the observe side to the much more widely recognized image of Lady Liberty striding forward boldly.

Augustus Saint-Gaudens can be credited for many of the designs seen on US collectible coins; his rendition of the Double Eagle much more closely resembles the design of the coin that was released in 2009 as a testimony to his vision and to the ability of the US Mint.

Obverse side of the coin depicts Lady Liberty with a flowing robe; in her left hand she holds an olive branch and a flaming torch in her right hand.

Reverse side of the coin depicts a young Eagle, the symbol of American freedom, flying at sunrise

The edge holds the motto familiar to most of us: "E Pluribus Unum"
