10 Dollar Gold Eagles 1795 to 1933

The eagle was a base-unit of denomination issued only for gold coinage by the United States Mint. The eagle was the largest of the four main decimal base-units of denomination used for circulating coinage in the United States. These four main base-units of denomination were the cent, the dime, the dollar, and the eagle. The eagle base-unit of denomination served as the basis of the gold quarter-eagle, the gold half-eagle, the eagle, and the double-eagle coins. The one dollar and three dollar gold coins are part of the Dollar base unit.

The Double Eagle coin was minted from 1849 to 1933.

America's largest circulating gold coin was the Double Eagle or $20 piece. This beautiful gold coin was designed by Chief Engraver James Barton Longacre. Longacre used a handsome woman's head (Miss Liberty) displaying a pearl-bordered headdress inscribed LIBERTY. The reverse is based on the Great Seal of the United States, it depicts a spread eagle with a shield on its breast, 13 stars in an oval with rays above. The United States of America appears above, the denomination TWENTY D. below.

What’s the most beautiful U.S. gold coin ever made? Most coin collecter will tell you it's the 20 dollar Double Eagle designed by Augustus Saint-Gaudens in 1907 and produced until 1933.

Saint-Gaudens created a superb design in the double eagle. Its obverse features a full-length portrait of Miss Liberty with a torch in her right hand and an olive branch in her left. She is shown in full stride with rays of sunlight behind her and the U.S. Capitol Building to the left of her flowing gown. Encircling her are 46 stars—one for each state in the Union at that time. The coin’s reverse depicts a breathtaking eagle in flight, with the sun below extending its rays upward. Above the eagle are the inscriptions UNITED STATES OF AMERICA and TWENTY DOLLARS.
