In 1904, President Roosevelt decided to beautify United States coinage further and personally handpicked Augustus Saint Gaudens as the artist who could accomplish this task successfully. Sadly, soon after finalizing the designs for the Eagle and Double Eagle Gold Coins, Saint-Gaudens passed away in 1907 before he could witness his creation circulated as currency across the United States. Each of these coins contains 0.9675 troy ounces of pure gold. Pre-1933 gold coins like these are valued for both their historical value as well as their gold value -- making them excellent options for those who want to diversify. The obverses feature the timeless rendition of Lady Liberty striding forwards with a torch and olive branch in each hand.
This design left a lasting impression on the American people, so much so that it is proudly featured on the US Mint's modern American Gold Eagle coins that were first struck in 1986. Please note that though these gold coins are guaranteed to be in BU state, they might still show signs of regular aging.
